Giving compensation is not like distributing biscuits: VK Singh

The remains of the 39th worker have not been brought back as DNA tests have not been conclusive.

The remains of the 27 men belonging to Punjab were received by their relatives at the Sri Guru Ram Das Jee International Airport in Amritsar. Thirty-nine of the 40 Indians were killed by the group, while one escaped.

"And now, that their mortal remains are becoming back, instead of holding hands, sympathising with the families and providing succour in form of compensation and jobs to the families. the completely inhuman statement of Singh that giving compensation is not like distributing biscuits, is shameful, reprehensible, unacceptable in a democracy".

The remains of 31 Indians, who were from Punjab and Himachal Pradesh, were handed over to officials at the Amritsar airport.

Asked how they were killed, General Singh, a former army chief, said that some of the persons were killed by bullets.

A special aircraft carrying the bodies of 38 of 39 Indians, who went missing in Mosul in June 2014 and whom the government recently declared dead, landed in Amritsar on Monday. He made his way back to India, where he told authorities that his 39 colleagues had been killed.

"Once the embassy had been informed about them, they can not say that they did not have a record".

The US Institute of Peace works in Iraq to foster local reconciliation in Daesh-liberated areas, support minorities, help facilitate dialogue between police and communities and inform policy discussions.

Talking about the compensation the families would receive, he said, "Look, this is not a game of football, both the centre and state government are sensitive about the matter".

"This was my fourth trip to Iraq [since the workers disappeared]".

"I want all the Indians go overseas legally".

There were around 10,000 Indians working in Iraq at the time, most of whom fled the country during the upsurge in violence in 2014. The terror group was subsequently beaten back by US -supported Iraqi forces following a volatile three-year campaign.

Meanwhile speaking to reporters, Singh said there was no record in any embassy that the Indians were killed by the Islamic State in Iraq.
