They said the message was also sent to social activist BC Abdul Rahman on the same day. The message purportedly sent by one Asfaq Majeed, one of the 21 youths from Kerala who allegedly went missing and joined the ISIS, did not provide more details about Marwan or the place where he was killed.
Marwan had been working as a physiotherapist in a gulf nation before joining the terror group last year, police said. He was among the 21 persons from the state, who reportedly went missing after travelling to the Middle East last year and later joined the ISIS in Syria.
In April, Yahya, a native of Palakkad was allegedly killed in an air strike in Afghanistan.
