Dhaka attack: Tarishi Jain's remains brought back to India, last rites in Gurgaon today

New Delhi: The mortal remains of 19-year-old Tarishi Jain, the only Indian casualty in recent Dhaka terror attack, arrived in India from Bangladesh on Monday.

Tarishi's remains will be taken to Gurgaon where her last rites will be conducted. The government is likely to send a representative to her last rites.

Tarishi was to come down to Ferozabad on July 4 in Uttar Pradesh to meet her extended family here. The same day when her body will come down from Dhaka for her last rites to be held in Gurgaon at 5:30 pm.


Tarishi, a student at UC Berkeley, was on vacation in Dhaka. She was caught up in the horrific 11-hour siege at the Holey Artisan Bakery and was later killed after being taken hostage by a group of attackers.

Her father runs a garment business in Bangladesh for the last 15-20 years, according to officials here.

Twenty foreigners, including eight Italians, seven Japanese and the Indian student, were brutally murdered by the militants inside the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka's diplomatic zone before commandos launched an assault yesterday, killing six attackers and capturing one alive, ending Bangladesh's worst terror attack.

The bodies of the victims were recovered during a search in the Bakery compound after the operation.

On Sunday, the ISIS terror group claimed responsibility for the attack that left at least people dead. The Amaq news agency, affiliated with ISIS, posted photos purportedly showing hostages' bodies though the authenticity of the images could not be confirmed.

According to another report, the ISIS group on Sunday released photos of five of Dhaka attackers.
