The IS is known to put out such lists. It had also put out a similar list for Indians last year, with 4,681 civilians picked in a random manner. 'O individual wolves out there in the world kill the cross where ever you find it and Kill them strongly, kill them hardly'. This was a chilling message on the private Telegram channel of the Islamic State United Cyber Caliphate. This was a message was put out before the IS put out a kill list of 4,681 civilians across the world of which 285 were Indians.

The list was examined by the NIA, who has said that on the face of it, the list appears to be a diversionary tactic. The list of Indians was prepared by Yusuf al-Hindi aka Shafi Armar, the alleged handler of the IS based out of Syria.
