The government on Thursday said it was making all possible efforts to ensure the release of the 40 Indian workers abducted in Iraq.
"I am personally mulling over all options. The government is making all kinds of efforts. We are not leaving any stone unturned," External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj told reporters here. "I am personally supervising this. I will be meeting some of (the kin of the abducted Indians)," she said.
"I want to assure the families that the government and I will try our very best... make every effort."
The 40 Indians working for a Turkish construction company have been abducted in violence-hit Iraq's Mosul area, which has been taken over by Sunni insurgents.
