Dhaka attack: Tarishi Jain's kin leave for Bangladesh, to return with her mortal remains on Monday

New Delhi: The family members of Tarishi Jain, the Indian girl who was hacked to death by Islamic militants in a terror attack at a Dhaka restaurant, will on Sunday leave for Dhaka and will return with her mortal remains tomorrow, a report said. 

Her body will be flown to New Delhi on Monday from where her family members will take her to Uttar Pradesh's Firozabad for the last rites, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said. 

"It is a case of brutal killing - an unnatural death. Some legal procedure has (to) be completed," Swaraj said on Twitter.

Swaraj said the country is with Tarishi's family in this hour of grief and visa has been arranged for them.

Tarishi, a 19-year-old girl 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. 

Jain had finished her schooling from the American School in Dhaka and was pursuing her studies at the University of California, Berkeley, Swaraj added.

Tarishi, a student at UC Berkeley, was on vacation in Dhaka. 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.

ISIS terror group takes responsibility

Meanwhile, 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.
