11 people, including a couple with their two-year-old and eight-month-old children, are missing from Cheruvathur Padana panchayat in Kerala's Kasaragod district.
Their family is not in contact with them since a month and fear that they have joined ISIS as they were going there for some religious studies.
Abdul Salam said that his nephew, who was pursuing advanced studies in Islam, was supposed to return to Kasargod for Eid on July 5.
A family of one of them have also received a video from their son who is a doctor and an educated person saying we have reached Islamic state and now it is a matter of life and death.
These are the messages that they have received and now there is no communication between them since a long time.
The families have also said that they never used WhatsApp as it was a US based application and instead they used other ways for communication.
They used telegram an app which is famous in the middle east and used largely by the ISIS group.
It is also said that everyone who went missing uses the same number to communicate to their families.
