New Delhi: Two Indian teachers who were abducted in Libya over a year ago have been released, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Thursday.

"I am happy to inform that T Gopalakrishna (AP) and C BalaramKishan (Telangana) who were captive in Libya since July 29, 2015 have been rescued," she tweeted.

Both Gopalakrishna and Balaramkishan were teachers at the University of Sirte and were abducted while they were on their way to Tripoli airport to return to India.

Sirte was the hometown of ousted Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
