Sheikh Selim’s grandson among those killed in Sri Lanka blasts

Awami League leader Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim’s grandson Zayan Chowdhury was killed in Sunday’s explosions in Sri Lanka that left at least 290 people dead.

Sharif Mahmud Apu, Public Relations officer of the Home Ministry, told UNB that Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal went to Sheikh Selim’s Banani residence around 11:30 am to console him. 

Zayan Chowdhury, 8, son of Sheikh Selim’s daughter Sheikh Amena Sultana Sonia, was killed in an explosion that ripped through a hotel in Colombo where he was staying along with his family.

Besides, Zayan’s father Mashiul Haque Chowdhury, injured in the blast, was admitted to a hospital there.

Awami League presidium member Sheikh Selim is a cousin of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at a reception in Brunei said the son-in-law of Sheikh Selim was injured in Sunday’s explosions in Sri Lanka and his grandson remained missing.

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 on Sunday. It was the nation’s worst violence since a bloody civil war ended a decade ago.UNB
