"Happy two Indians released in Sirte LIbya pray for others. Ques- since (Foreign Minister) Sushma Swaraj claiming credit - is India doing business with IS in Libya," tweeted the former information and broadcasting minister.

"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.

Islamic State terror group (ISIS) abducted four Indian teachers working in Libya two days ago but the government said it has 'secured' the release of two of them.

"Four Indians abducted in Libya - I am happy we have been able to secure the release of Lakshmikant and Vijay Kumar. Trying for other two," External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said.

MEA Spokesperson Vikas Swarup said the two Indians have been brought back safely to University of Sirte and efforts were continuing for the remaining two. However, it was not immediately known how they were freed.

Earlier yesterday morning, Swaraj had briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the incident as also the steps being taken by the Ministry to secure their release.
