New Delhi : The government had said it would declare 39 Indians missing in Iraq’s Mosul since 2014 dead only with full evidence. In parliament today, Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj offered that evidence. "With full proof I can say these 39 are dead," she informed the Rajya Sabha.
Giving details of how the government confirmed the deaths, the foreign minister revealed how technology and assistance from Iraqi authorities led New Delhi to the bodies of the 39 Indians.
The bodies was detected when Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh scoured the Badush area along with the Indian envoy and an Iraqi official.
They were told by a local about a mound around 25 km from Mosul, where it seemed like many bodies had been buried.
To determine whether the mound was indeed a mass grave, deep penetration radars were used.
The mound had exactly 39 bodies, with distinctive features like long hair, Sikh kada (bracelet), non-Iraqi shoes and IDs. The bodies were then exhumed and sent to Baghdad for DNA testing.
"We recovered ID cards, long hair, kada and some non-Iraqi footwear," Ms Swaraj said.
DNA testing by Martyrs Foundation has established identity of 38 Indians while there has been 70 per cent matching of the DNA for the 39th person.

New Delhi March 20: The ever-growing feud between Mohammed Shami and his estranged wife Hasin Jahan, on Monday, hit a new low after a Pakistani woman named Alishba – who is accused of having an affair with the Indian cricketer and handing him money at the behest of a UK-based man named Mohammad bhai – confirmed meeting the fast bowler in Dubai.
Alishba’s confirmation came after Shami’s wife had alleged that her husband had taken money from the Pakistani girl when he was returning home after India’s tour of South Africa. She further accused Shami of match-fixing. Amongst her various sensational accusations, it was this particular allegation that forced the Committee of Administrators (CoA) Vinod Rai to look into the matter closely.
With the head of its anti-corruption body Neeraj Kumar being asked to submit a report in a week’s time, Alishba’s admission to meeting Shami in Dubai when he was returning from South Africa has further fuelled the case. Alishba claimed she has been in touch with Shami ever since India’s shocking defeat to Pakistan in the 2017 Champions Trophy final.
“Yes, I met him. I am a frequent flyer to Dubai because my sister stays in Sharjah. As a person, I really like Shami. As any fan that has idolised a celebrity, they always dream of meeting their idol. I had the desire to meet him (Shami) like any other fan would want to, which I don’t think is a big deal,” Alishba told ABP News.
