Sri Lanka blasts: Zayan’s body to be brought home Tuesday
The body of Zayan Chowdhury, who was killed in Sunday’s gruesome terror attack in Sri Lanka, will be brought back home on Tuesday.
Industries Minister Nurul Majid Mahmud Humayun confirmed the news to reporters on Monday.
The minister said this while talking to reporters after coming out from the residence of Awami League Presidium Member Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim.
Zayan Chowdhury is the grandson of Awami League Presidium Member Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim.
The boy, eight and a half years old, was having breakfast with his father Moshiul Haque Chowdhary Prince at a restaurant on the ground floor of a hotel in Colombo that came under attack along with several other hotels and churches during Easter Sunday celebrations.
Prince was also injured and hospitalised.
Zayan’s younger brother Zohan Chowdhary and mother Sheikh Amina Sultana Sonia were in their hotel room during the blast. The family went to Sri Lanka on a holiday tour.
A series of blasts at churches and hotels in and just outside Sri Lanka’s capital killed at least 290 people and injured hundreds more on Easter Sunday.
Police said that 24 arrests have now been made, but the government has not yet identified who carried out the attacks.
