Another Keralite IS member killed in Afghanistan

Kasargode (Kerala), June 19 (IANS): News has been received here about the death of another Kerala resident who had gone to Afghanistan to join the Islamic State terror group, an intelligence official said on Monday.

The news about the death of Sajeer M. Abdullah and a picture of his body was received on the mobile of a man, whose relative is among the 21 Keralites who left their homes here to join the IS, said the official of the Kerala Police's intelligence unit.

However there was no information about time and cause of Abdullah's death.

An intelligence official, who did not wish to be identified, told IANS that the news and picture came to the same person who received reports about the death of three others of this group during the course of this year.

"Beyond this, there are no other details... we have done what we normally do when we get these types of reports," said the official.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan last year had informed the state assembly that 21 people, including children, were missing - 17 persons from Kasargode district and four from Palakkad.
