The junior foreign minister made the comments on Monday at Amritsar's Sri Guru Ram Das Jee International Airport after bringing back the mortal remains of the 38 men.

Speaking to reporters at the Amritsar airport, General VK Singh, the minister of state for external affairs, admitted that "this isn't the time to raise the issue" but said: "It is a fact that they went there through an illegal agent".

Punjab minister Navjot Singh Sidhu, flanked with Singh, said the state government would give Rs five lakh each to the family members of the victims.

The opposition has attacked the government and Sushma Swaraj and accused them of misleading the nation on the state of the Indians.

The workers were abducted and murdered by the extremists shortly after the group took the northern Iraqi city of Mosul in the summer of 2014 during a lightning offensive through central and northern Iraq. "But what has come today is his mortal remains", Kaur told ANI television in Punjab's Jalandhar city after receiving her husband's casket.

The body of one worker - Raju Yadav, a native of Bihar state - could not be brought back as DNA testing on him had not yet been completed, said India's Minister of State for External Affairs, V.K. Singh, who accompanied the caskets of the 38 from Iraq.

"So far as to as when they were killed, it can not be ascertained, but the second thing that you asked, it is possible that when the certificates of Martyrs Foundation come, it might have something about how they were killed, whether by a bullet or how".

Access To Medical Marijuana May Be Helping Reduce Opioid Abuse
Two just-published clinical trials from Israel (where medical cannabis use is legally permitted) further affirm this phenomenon. Montana regulators are preparing additional adjustments to the rules for the state's medical marijuana program.

"I want all the Indians go overseas legally. But it is very hard to say whether it is more than a year or less than a year", he said. IS may have viewed the workers as polytheists deserving of death due to their Hindu or Sikh faith.

She also said that the Indian worker contacted the Indian embassy regularly about their situation from June 4 to June 17 in 2014 but no measure was taken to rescue them.

In all, 40 workers were kidnapped, but one escaped and the presumed remains of another have yet to be identified, report news agencies.

"Had the victims belonged to any other state., the Centre would have distributed the government jobs like biscuits", Sarwan added.

"We are thankful to the authorities in Iraq for the help to locate the victims and exhume the mortal remains". Thereafter, DNA sample exercise commenced.

"Do you know about Indian nurses case?" Initially, they refused to leave the place, saying they were not in danger.

"When the remains came to us, they were just skeletons, only bones". Had there been any information that these persons (40 Indian men) were in crisis at a particular location, we would have rescued them.
