Baghdad, the fate of over 40 Indians workers who were kidnapped in Mosul last Tuesday still unclear.
But a Bangladesh labor in Baghdad said on Friday that two of their friends who were among the kidnapped Indians in Mosul were released and returned to their work in Mosul “they called us and they were released Thursday night”, Abdul Rahman Mohammed, a Bangladesh worker in one of the hotels in Baghdad told Iraqi Bulletin on Friday.
Mohammed said that freed Bangladesh labors were released after the militant checked their religion and made sure they are Muslims “they were checking us one by one by asking us to read Fatiha”, one of the freed Bangladesh told Mohammed by phone.
Mohammed also said that the other kidnapped Indians were at the same building with them but their fate is unknown so far.
The hostages worked for Baghdad-based construction company Tariq Noor Al Huda and were abducted in Mosul after it fell to Sunni Muslim rebels last week.
Indian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday that Forty Indian construction workers have been kidnapped in Mosul.
“The Red Crescent confirmed to us that as per their information, 40 Indian construction workers have been kidnapped,” foreign ministry spokesman Syed Akbaruddin said. “We won’t leave any stone unturned to help every single Indian national”.
On Wednesday, Dogan news agency in Turkey said militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Sham (ISIS) had seized 60 people, including 15 Turks, who were building a hospital near the town of Dour in Salahuddin province, close to Kirkuk.
Dogan said those abducted included workers from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Turkmenistan, quoting a worker who was freed along with other Sunni Muslims let go by the Sunni militants.
ISIS is seeking a Sunni Islamic Caliph style with extremist Islamic style, where they look to non-Muslim as infidel and they should be killed.
