Defence Minister Arun Jaitley Tuesday refused to ''speculate'' when asked if India planned to send troops to Iraq to rescue Indians trapped there.

"I am not going to speculate," the minister told the media.

Nearly 120 Indians are stranded and 39 have been abducted in Iraq in areas overrun by Sunni insurgents. There are more than 10,000 Indians in Iraq overall, according to the external affairs ministry.
