KALYAN: Two of the four Kalyan youths suspected to have joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) called up their families earlier this week and confirmed they were working as members of the militant Sunni Islamist group in the Raqqa province of Syria, investigating officials said.

Aarif Majid and Saleem Tanki, the two youths who spoke to their families, told them they were safe and that their entire family would go to 'jannat' or heaven because of the 'work' they were doing as part of ISIS, the officials said.

Aarif and Saleem said that the other two youths from Kalyan who had gone missing, Aman Tandel and Fahad Shaikh, were also with ISIS and safe. All four were living separately in two groups in the same province, they said.

Though Aarif's family denied such a call and Saleem's family was unavailable for comment, sources said both had shared details with the anti-terrorism squad and National Investigation Agency.

Sources said Aarif, who had been studying civil engineering at a Navi Mumbai college, spoke to his father Ejaz, who is a doctor. When the father asked him to return, Aarif said he would not but the family could come to Syria to meet him, sources added.

Saleem, an HSC dropout who had been working at a call centre here, also spoke to his parents and confirmed he was in Raqqa.

Raqqa is a province in the northern part of Syria that the ISIS captured early this year. It is considered an ISIS stronghold where the outfit has imposed its version of Islamic law.

The families of the four youths had lodged complaints at the Bazarpeth police station in Kalyan after they went missing in the last week of May. The four had gone to Iraq as part of a 30-member group of pilgrims but had disappeared a day before the group was supposed to return. A taxi driver had told investigators he had dropped the four at Mosul, which had soon after come under ISIS control. Investigators said Aarif had left a letter at home before leaving, in which he had criticized his family members for "sinning".

Meanwhile, sources said investigators probing if the youths were indoctrinated locally have come to know that one of Aarif's relatives, along with his five friends, left for Saudi Arabia for Umrah (mini-Haj) in June and is expected to return at the end of the ongoing month of Ramzan. The agencies are waiting for the relative to come back, so that they can probe if he played any role in brainwashing them.
