Six Indians among those killed in New Zealand attack including 25-year-old Kerala student



From a father praying for the well-being of his five-day-old daughter to a husband who saw a shooting begin inside the mosque his wife walked into, at least six Indians were killed when an Australia-born gunman opened fire with assault rifles during Friday prayers in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Among the 49 victims of the terror attack  was Ancy (23) from Kodungallur in Kerala’s Thrissur district and the wife of Ponnadathu Abdul Nazar.Nazar works at a supermarket in Christchurch, while Ancy studied agriculture technology. The couple had moved to New Zealand a year ago after they wed in 2017.

While the family of Mohammad Juned Kara from Navsari in Gujarat was informed of his death Friday, three more men from Gujarat, who were attending the Friday prayers at the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch were also killed in the attack. On the day of the attack, Ramiz and his father Arif — both from Panigate in Vadodara — were offering namaz at the Al Noor mosque to pray for Ramiz’s newborn five-day-old daughter, when Tarrant opened fire, injuring both critically.

The victims also include a 65-year-old resident of Juhapura in Ahmedabad, Mehboob Khokhar, who was visiting his son Imran in Christchurch for the first time. He was pronounced dead Saturday after fatal gunshot wounds.
