A person named Imran, a native of Hyderabad, who was with Hemil, informed the family about the death at 6 pm on February 23. According to the message, Hemil was killed in a missile attack in the war zone. Imran told the family that Hemil died on February 21. Hemil had talked to his father over the phone a day before his death. He had told his father that he was fine and was working as a helper in the Russian army.
