At least 40 Indian workers are stranded in the Iraqi city of Mosul, which is captured by ISIS militants. There are reports of a possible abduction of these Indian nationals.

The workers were kidnapped when they were being evacuated from the area ravaged by the war between the Shia-dominated government in Baghdad and Sunni jihadis, reports the Times of India.

However, the Ministry of External Affairs has said that though they have been unable to establist contact with them, there is no input to suggest its an abduction. "The embassy is in touch with Indians spread across Iraq," the MEA said.
