Majeed, Shaheen Tanki, Fahad Sheikh and Aman Tandal left for Iraq end May. Last, Tanki's family said they had received a call informing them that Majeed had died in a bomb blast in Mosul.

The police have also received a picture of Majeed holding a gun. They have registered the statements of some of the family members.

"We know that our child is not in any war. He had gone there for a job. We know he will come back," said a member of the family.
