Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh, who brought back mortal remains of 39 Indians killed in Iraq here on Monday, urged all state governments to take strict action against fake agents who send unskilled and innocent people overseas illegally.

Forty Indian men were kidnapped at the construction site where they worked, close to Mosul.

A special aircraft carrying the mortal remains of 38 Indians killed in Iraq arrived at the Amritsar International Airport today. About 10,000 Indians lived and worked in Iraq at the time. Both state and central govts are sensitive.

She said it was the primary duty of the Indian ambassador in the country to immediately inform the government in India after news broke out that the situation had worsened in Iraq. Sidhu met the family members at the airport and assured that the government would rehabilitate them. "They will be provided all possible help as per the rules; they may have demands but if these are beyond the rules, we will put it before the senior officials".

On being asked if his government would consider providing jobs to the families of those killed by the IS in Iraq, Singh lost his cool once again saying 'This is not a game of football'.

"Should we take it that the government did not acknowledge them as Indians?"

Singh made a suggestion that the coffins should not be opened because of toxic contents in the remains, "The Martyrs Foundation had advised against the opening of caskets. Families have been informed".
