@DrSJaishankar
External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar today informed the Lok Sabha that there are about 6000 Indian nationals in various provinces of Iran, including 1100 pilgrims mainly from Ladakh, J&K and Maharashtra, nearly 300 students primarily from J&K and about a 1000 fishermen from Tamil Nadu, Kerala & Gujarat and others who are on longer-term stay visas in Iran for pursuing their livelihood.

In a statement made by him in the House, Minister also said that he visited Srinagar recently & took the initiative to meet the parents of some of the students who are in Iran. Their anxiety at this time is completely understandable.

Mr. Jaishankar also said that he assured them that govt would facilitate the earliest possible return of their children. He informed the House that sampling of these students has begun today.

Various members expressed concerns over the issue and praised the steps taken by the External Affairs Ministry.
Discussion is underway.
