2 missing Kerala youths suspected to have joined ISIS traced


Coimbatore (TN), Jul 15: Two youths from Kerala reported missing from that state for some time and suspected to have joined Islamic State (IS) have been traced to nearby Tirupur, police said on Thursday, July 14.

A preliminary enquiry showed no evidence to suggest that the two, who had left their homes after a quarrel with their parents, were trying to join IS, police said here.

Kerala Police personnel had arrived in Tirupur some days back to enquire about the youths. They found that Mohammed and Shabbir from Malampuzha had come to Tirupur after a quarrel with their parents and landed jobs in a garment factory, they said.

Notably, a suspected IS activist, arrested in West Bengal some days back, had stayed in Tirupur for some time. The two youths were taken back to Kerala early this morning, police said.
