The Centre must immediately come clean on what concrete steps it is taking to free the 39 Indians who were abducted by ISIS in the Iraqi city of Mosul in 2014, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said on Saturday.

She could theoretically face the death sentence, according to Iraqi law, for those actions, but she could not be executive before age 22, officials said.

German authorities have confirmed that the captured girl is Wenzel, although they did not confirm whether she had been fighting with the Islamic State. But there were contradicting reports about her identity, as some said it was Wenzel while others identified her as either a Chechen Isis fighter or a Yazidi girl.

The officials said the girl had married a Muslim Arab she met online after arriving in territory controlled at the time by IS.

"Our information ends with the girl's arrival in Istanbul about a year ago", he told the AP, as he added that further details about her whereabouts in the last year were part of an investigation. The French authorities are in contact with the Iraqis to take back the children to France, while they have shown no interest to extradite the French woman, leaving her to be prosecuted in Iraq. She was reported missing past year from her home in the small town of Pulsnitz, near Dresden.

The woman was arrested with her children in a basement in Mosul's Old City.

"We, as the public prosecutor's office Dresden, have not applied for an arrest warrant and will therefore not be able to request extradition", Haase said.

Bajwa demanded a parliamentary committee to look into the issue and said a team should be sent to Mosul in Iraq to know the reality first-hand. "They might be in Badush prison", Issa was quoted as saying by ANI.

Local newspapers reported past year that Linda W. was in touch with IS members online before she ran away from home.

Also detained during the military operation last Thursday were women from Russia, Turkey, Canada and Chechnya.

Her mother is said to have found a plane ticket under Linda.

She was among 20 Islamic State followers seized after the city fell following a ten-month battle that left 25,000 Jihadists dead and devastated Iraq's second largest city.

On the other hand, Iraqi foreign minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari will be visiting New Delhi from July-24-28.
