"Since foreign minister seems to have direct "hotline" to IS or ISIS in Libya what happened to 57 people from Punjab, are they dead or alive FM," he also asked.
Four teachers, two of whom were released later, were held captive by the IS in Libya on Friday. Officials are still trying their best for the release of the remaining two captive Indians.
