Kabul gurdwara attacker identified as ISIS recruit from Kerala: Indian media

The ISIS suicide bomber who attacked the Kabul Gurdwara on Wednesday has been identified as an Indian national, India Today reported.

According to the publication, the militant outfit had named one of the three terrorists who attacked the Gurudwara Har Rai Sahib as Abu Khalid Al-Hindi. His photograph, holding a Type 56 assault rifle and pointing his finger up, was published by IS in its magazine, Al Naba, on Mar 26.

However, citing sources, the publication claimed that the photograph was actually that of another Indian citizen, Muhammad Mohsin, 21, believed to have died in a drone strike in Afghanistan last year.

At least 25 people died and 8 were wounded as a Sikh gurdwara Kabul was attacked by three ISIS terrorists, reportedly all Indian nationals, on Wednesday. The terrorists opened fire and lobbed grenades at around 200 worshippers in the complex.

According to the Afghan government, local security forces ended the siege after a six-hour gun battle in which all three attackers were killed and 80 hostages were freed.
