New Delhi: The mortal remains of Indian teenager Tarishi Jain, who was among those hacked to death by Islamic militants in a terror attack at a Dhaka restaurant, was on Monday received at the Capital's international airport by Union Power and Coal Minister Piyush Goyal.
Tarishi, a student at UC Berkeley, was among 20 foreigners brutally murdered by the militants inside the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka's diplomatic zone during the weekend.
She was on vacation in Dhaka. Her father runs a garment business in Bangladesh for the last 15-20 years. Goyal later accompanied the body, along with her parents to Gurgaon, officials said.
Among the killed foreigners were eight Italians and seven Japanese. Commandos had launched an assault killing six attackers and capturing one alive, ending Bangladesh's worst terror attack.
Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, Union minister Rao Inderjit Singh, Haryana minister Ram Bilas Sharma, Congress leader Raj Babbar and M S Bitta paid tributes to Tarishi Jain, whose body was kept at the DLF Phase I community Centre for some time to allow people to pay tributes.
Raj Babbar gave a condolence letter sent by Congress president Sonia Gandhi to Tarishi Jain's family members and expressed grief on the death of young girl.
Tarishi's last rite was performed by her brother Sanchit at around 4:15 pm at the cremation ground at Iffco Chowk....
