New Delhi: In shocking news, 39 of the 41 Indian construction workers, who were abducted by IS militants, have reportedly been executed. The men, who were working for a Turkish construction company in Mosul, were abducted in mid-June when the jihadists overran the Iraqi region.

ABP News quoted two Bangladeshi construction workers as saying that they had met Harjeet Masih, the only Indian captive out of the group to escape from the clutches of the IS militants.

Harjeet reportedly informed them that he witnessed the execution of all his Indian co-workers. The duo quoted by ABP News is believed to be part of the 51 Bangladeshis who were kidnapped along with the group of Indian workers.

The ABP News report said: 'The masked militants holding pistols and Qurans in their hands segregated the workers from both the companies in two groups. After scrutinizing the Bangladeshis and knowing about their faith, militants told them that they would be taken to Erbil soon. While the Indians were kept in a different who sensed they too would be released.

Their mobiles and passports were all confiscated by the militants. All of them were given just one roti at 10 am during the entire day.'

'However, Harjeet told Shafi (one of the two Bangladeshis) that on June 15, they took all 40 Indians along with him to a hilly terrain where they were shot. Harjeet too suffered two bullet injuries but acted as if he was dead. To confirm that even Harjeet was dead, they kicked him, but since they didn’t observe any movement in his body they presumed that he was dead.'
