The control room set up by the Haryana Government has so far got information about 127 people from the state who were stranded in strife-torn Iraq.

Majority of those stranded hail from the northern parts of the state including Yamunanagar, Kurukshetra, Karnal, Ambala and Kaithal districts.

Among the stranded people, 31 are from Yamunanagar, 36 from Kurukshetra, 23 from Karnal, 29 from Ambala, four from Kaithal and one each from Sirsa, Rohtak, Bhiwani and Mahendergarh districts, an official said.

The chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda had given firm assurance that all-out efforts would be made for "safe evacuation of the people from Haryana who have been stranded in the strife-torn Iraq."

The state government has set up a round-the-clock functional control room with telephone number 0172-5059197, where people can provide information regarding members of their family or relatives stranded in Iraq, so that necessary steps can be taken for their safe evacuation.
