According to reports, a 30-year-old shopkeeper who fled from Kerala's Kasaragod was involved in a terror attack on Sikhs in Kabul. The terrorist Abu Khalid Al-Hindi was one among the three who attacked the Gurdwara

Reports suggest that Al-Hindi was known as Mohammed Sajid Kuthirulmmal, a shopkeeper from Padne area of Kasaragod in Kerala, wanted in a 2016 NIA case and had a red notice issued against him by Interpol.

In 2016, 14 cases of missing people, including that of Sajid were registered by parents in the police station of the same area, according to reports. Initial investigation revealed that the missing persons had left India to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a banned pan-Islamist terrorist organisation.

Though the NIA did not file a charge sheet against Sajid, he was listed as an accused and absconder in the case. Reports say Sajid clearly was one of those who escaped unscathed from Nangarhar.
