Vadodara (Gujarat): The father-son duo from Gujarat is feared missing in Christchurch after the massacre in the mosques in New Zealand on Friday, reports said.
Arif and Rameez Vohra had attended the Friday prayers at the Al Noor mosque where the dastardly attack took place. The family members said they are yet to get in touch with them after the gory incident.
The family members have sought the cooperation of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to get out of the situation.
Mohsin Vohra, the brother of Arif Vohra told news agencies that his nephew Rameez Vohra has been living in Christchurch for the last seven to eight years.
Arif and his wife Rukhsana went to New Zealand 25 days ago because Rameez’s wife Khushboo gave birth and he had gone there to take care of the infant, Mohsin said.
“There is no update about my brother Arif Vohra and my nephew Rameez Vohra. I do not know whether they have returned from the mosque safely or not”, he added.
I was in contact with them before the shooting. I request the Indian government to give us an update soon, he said.
New Zealand on Friday witnessed the worst crime in the country with multiple gunmen carrying out indiscriminate shooting at two mosques in Christchurch.
