Kerala woman, family among IS terrorists who surrendered in Afghan: Reports
Thiruvananthapuram: There are reports that a Thiruvananthapuram native woman and family who have links to Islamic State (IS) terrorists have surrendered before the Afghanistan army. The woman was identified as Nimisha, daughter of Bindu from Attukal in Thiruvananthapuram. Bindu told Mathrubhumi that her daughter and family also are included in the group.
They were identified from the pictures handed over by foreign news channels. Nimisha was missing since July 2016. She went with a group of people from Kasaragod to Afghanistan to join IS. Nimisha’s husband Eesa and three-year-old daughter Ummukulsu also are with them, Bindu informed.
“My daughter also is with them. I got many pictures. I could not identify my daughter from the group of women who covered faces. But I could identify my son-in-law and grandchild from one of the photos. Representatives of an Australian news channel had approached me three days ago to show the pictures given by news agencies. They contacted me in November last year and gave me a picture of the grandchild. Son-in-law Eesa also talked to me,’ Bindu said.
Nimisha was a final year BDS student at Century Dental College in Poinachi in Kasaragod when she married her friend Bexson Vincent, a Christian believer from Palakkad. Later, both embraced Islam religion. They went to Afghanistan via Sri Lanka. Their relatives were informed that they were at Nangarhar. Bindu expects they will be brought back to native place.
