A police intelligence officer here told IANS that they have heard the news but there is no official confirmation from the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

"What we have come to know is that the dead include Shihaz, his wife and their child besides another man. We are awaiting more details," said the official who did not wish to be identified.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in 2016 said that 21 people, including children, were missing — 17 persons from Kasargode district and four from Palakkad.
