New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday said there is no proof that the 39 Indians missing from Iraq’s Mosul are dead.

Swaraj said she will not “commit the sin” of declaring them dead without concrete evidence. “I will inform the House if I get any concrete evidence. Opposition is alleging that I'm misleading the House. It is a sin to declare someone dead without any evidence. I will not do that sin,” she said.

Swaraj, who was speaking in the Lok Sabha, said the government will leave no stone unturned to trace the missing Indians.

“This file will not close till there is proof that the 39 Indians were dead. I will not commit the sin of declaring them dead without any evidence,” she added.

The minister refuted the opposition’s allegation that she has misled the families of the missing citizens. “I have never misled. I want to ask the opposition what benefit will I get by misleading. What benefit my government get by misleading the people on the issue,” she said.
