IS Terrorist Sajeer Mangalassery Reported Killed in Afghan

New Delhi: The Keralite, who is suspected to have led the Malayalee youths in the terror outfit IS, has been reported killed in the US air attack in the Nangarhar province of Afghanistan, reported national media quoting intelligence agencies. The deceased Sajeer Mangalassery Abdulla is hailing from Moozhikkal in Kozhikode.

It’s said that the intelligence agencies got the report from Afghanistan and other foreign countries.

Meanwhile the diplomatic officials have not confirmed the report. They added that the US or Afghanistan has not handed over any information in this regard.

They also pointed out that anti-terror movements should have been handed over officially. According to reports, the US and Afghan air force are jointly conducting attacks in this area and it’s difficult to identify the killed people.

After graduating from NIT, Kozhikode, in Civil Engineering, Sajeer reached Saudi Arabia in search of job and from there he went abroad to indulge in terror-related activities.

The NIA had earlier found that the 21 Kerala youths, who have gone to the IS camp in Afghanistan, were recruited by Sajeer. He had his schooling at Sultan Battery. His father, a retired driver from KSRTC, passed away 10 years ago. After getting admission to the NIT, Sajeer shifted to Moozhikkal.

He usually does not mingle with others during his study period and even when he reaches his place for vacation.
