Police say information of the first Sri Lankan believed to be killed while fighting for IS militants in Syria are being gathered from his ID card and close relatives.

Police Media Spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekera said that the IGP has directed the DIG Central Province to carry out a full investigation into this incident.

The 37-year old  Musli Lilamdan was reported to be killed in an air strike in Syria last week.

IS militants had identified him as Abu Silani.

He was born at Werallagama in Kandy, and his wife is living in Colombo.

A director of an international school in Galewela told our news team that Musli Lilamdan served in that school as its principal.

Lilandam had also served as a martial art trainer in the area, and our correspondent stated that he participated in an Independence Day ceremony held in 2014 at the Mosque at Galewela.

However, police media spokesman said that the ongoing investigation would unearth further details of this person.

Meanwhile, a director of Darul Kirath Arabic school of Mabola Wattala Moulavi Mahasook Abdul Rahuman requests the public not to make connection whatsoever with the IS militant movement.
