Sk Selim’s grandson among SL terror attack victims

Body of 8-year-old Zayan to reach home tomorrow
STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka
Sk Selim’s grandson among SL terror attack victims

The body of Awami League (AL) leader Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim’s grandsdon Zayan Chowdhury (8), who died in Sunday’s bomb attacks in Sri Lanka, will be brought home tomorrow (Wednesday). Zayan was killed in the Easter Sunday bombing attacks in Sri Lanka that claimed at least 290 lives and wounded more than 500 people.

AL acting general secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif yesterday told reporters: “Zayan's body will be brought home at 11:30am on Wednesday. His namaj-e-janaza will be held at Chairman Bari (Banani) field after Asar prayers on that day.” Zayan will be buried at Banani graveyard after the janaza, added Hanif.

Zayan went to Sri Lanka with his parents and brother on a trip and stayed in one of the hotels that underwent the attack. His father, Moshiul Haque Chowdhury Prince, was also injured in the attack and is currently undergoing treatment in Colombo. It will not be possible to bring back Prince right now as he is undergoing treatment there. He needs at least 15 days to leave the hospital, according to family sources.

Both Prince and Zayan chowdhury were eating food at the restaurant of their hotel when the blast took place.

On receiving the news, Sheikh Selim’s wife and one of his sons rushed to Sri Lanka on Sunday.

Sheikh Selim is a paternal cousin of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and is also a presidium member of the AL. AL leaders, ministers and

relatives of Sheikh Selim have been visiting Zayan’s Banani house since yesterday morning to console the bereaved family.

Zayan was living with his parents at Sheikh Selim’s Banani residence.   Among others, industries minister Nurul Majid Mahmud Humayun, former shipping minister Shajahan Khan, former LGRD minister Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, home minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal, science and technology affairs minister Yeafes Osman, LGRD minister Tajul Islam, AL presidium member Lt Col (retd) Muhammad Faruk Khan and health minister Jahid Malek visited the Banani house.

Prime minister Sheikh Hasina has strongly condemned the terrible bomb attacks in Sri Lanka, urging all to raise their voices against terrorists. “Terrorists have no race, religion and countries. They’re terrorists and destroy the life of people. So, I call upon all to be vocal against them,” she said. Hasina was addressing a mass reception accorded to her by the Bangladesh community in Brunei Darussalam at the Indera Samudera Ballroom of the Empire Hotel and County Club yesterday evening.

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. It was the worst violent incident faced by the nation since a bloody civil war ended a decade ago.
