DHAKA, Bangladesh: The terror outfit Daesh, also known as Islamic State (IS), is operating from the Indian State of Kerala and another resident of Kerala has been killed in a US drone strike inside Afghanistan.
A 17 year-old Hafeezuddin (Hafesudheen Theke Kole) from Kasaragod district in Kerala was reportedly killed in a US drone strike in Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.
According to mother of Hafeezuddin, she got news of her son from another boy of vicinity working with Daesh.
Sources confirm that over 47 boys from Padanna near Cheruvathu have been killed in Afghanistan during last one year.
It may be mentioned that Daesh was involved in Holey Artisan Bakery Dhaka last year and Bangladeshi intelligence agencies got information that Daesh is operating from Kerala. However the issue of involvement of Daesh was buried due to political proximity of the Bangladesh government and the Indian government.
Sources said that Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Wajed asked intelligence agencies to kill this news because news was harmful for Indian authorities.
The Hindu newspaper confirmed that Daesh group from Kerala was located in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province.
