According to reports, the attack killed the two and a few others who resided in the same complex. Vipin and Sunu had left for Libya after their marriage in 2012.

The office of Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said that they are making efforts to reach out to people in Libya to find out the latest situation.

Libya has descended into political chaos, with two rival governments seeking control, and insecurity since its 2011
revolution which ousted longtime dictator Moamer Kadhafi.
