Recent communication exchanges between senior IS figures have brought revelations of the death of the Melbourne-born jihadist.

Details have not emerged of how or where he reportedly died but the communications between the militants were that Prakash has been “shahada’’, the terror group’s description when a fighter is killed.  The Federal Government and police sources are unable to confirm Prakash’s death, which would hurt the terror group’s international ­recruitment efforts.
