The bodies of two Bangladeshi citizens, who were killed in the Christchurch mosque shooing in New Zealand, arrived in Dhaka last night.
They were Zakaria Bhuiyan of Narsingdi and Omar Faruk of Narayanganj.
Family members and relatives of the deceased received the bodies at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 11:15pm, a relative of Zakaria told The Daily Star.
“We left for Narsingdi after receiving the body. Zakaria will be buried at his family graveyard in Joypura village under Palash upazila of Narsingdi,” said Sharif Sarkar, brother-in-law of Zakaria.
On March 15, a total of 50 people were shot dead as a white supremacist shot and killed devotees at two mosques -- Al Noor and Linwood -- at Christchurch.
Among the dead, five were identified as Bangladeshi nationals.
