The Indian Express reporters have visited the homes of the 17 youngsters to find out clues from their families about how and what made their off-springs and siblings to join the world’s most dreadful regime.

Last year, The Indian Express  revealed that four Thane youth  joined the Islamic State out of which only one, Areeb Majid, has  returned back home and was later  booked under terrorism-related charges. Three other Indian nationals, not in the list of 17, are thought to have been killed.
