Police on Wednesday said that they would seek Interpol help to trace the 13 missing youths who were allegedly left the country to join the Middle East-based Jihadist group 'Islamic State' (IS).
These youths remained missing for three months to four years as complained by their parents after the militant attack in an upscale restaurant in Dhaka on July 1.
Twenty two people were killed in the attack, most of them foreigners, when six young men stormed into the restaurant to carry out the bloody shooting claimed by IS.

He, however, said that they will send the profiles of 13 missing persons to Interpol as per the demands from the investigators.
Police sources said that the missing youths already become the fighters of the IS and they may now staying at the IS battlefields in Middle East.
