 Rahiman, a social activist, said he received the message on Thursday on social media app, Telegram.

“The exact date could not be known yet…The message did not come from the usual source…I could not get more details,” Rahiman told PTI on Friday over phone.

Murshid was among the 21 persons from the state, who reportedly went missing after travelling to the Middle East last year and were suspected to have joined the terrorist organisation in Syria. However, Chandera police did not confirm the news saying, “We have no information about it.”
