3 US students meet bad fate in Dhaka after they were taken hostage

by Emily Parker Helping students since 2006
The death of 2 students of Emory University in the recent terrorist attacked at a Café in Dhaka shook the entire world. Emory University’s President officially announced that 2 of their students were murdered at the hand of terrorists in Dhaka, Bangladesh. This attack killed 20 hostages and 2 police officers, after all of them were kept as hostages in a Café for more than half a day. An announcement by the Indian Government clarified than one Indian origin student of the University of California, Berkley also died in this horrendous attack. Other clarifications from Italian and Japanese Governments made it clear that nine and seven of their residents respectively lost their lives in the same incident. As of now, there is only one dead body without any confirmed nationality. Except the unfortunate one who lost their lives, thirteen of the hostages were also saved when commandos of the Bangladeshi police manage to seize Holey Artisan Bakery, located in the specialized area of the city, after shooting down all the terrorists. Two of the commandos lost their lives in the deadly combat that lasted for several hours, but finally the commandos manage to subdue the terrorists by killing all six of them. One of the students from Emory University is Abinta Kabir, who is from Miami, and the other one is Faraaz Hossain from Dhaka. The white house also declared that one US citizen also met the bad fate, but the person’s identity is not revealed. Indian Government made an announcement to declare Tarishi Jain of 18 years, died in this massacre. Tarishi was also an active volunteer student assignment helper.
The University President in a letter to the “Emory Community expressed his sadness and condolence to the families of these two students. He says, “Abinta went to visit her family and friends to Bangladesh. Unfortunately, she was present at the café when terrorists attacked it. After 12 hours, it was found that she was murdered”. He also stated, “I have managed to speak to Abinta’s mother, who is in the deepest of grief”.The presidents also said that both of these students would be remembered by their college in the coming fall. He made an appeal to other students, “Please console each other and help these families to overcome the shattering lose they have undergone.” 

One of their batch mates shares that she has worked with these two students in a University wide event. She said, “I am still not able to get in terms with the fact that in the coming fall, I am not going to see them in the college. Many of my friends were very close to them, all of them are in a state of shock and disbelief.” Islamic state has taken the complete onus of this atrocious attack. The pope Francis said that this is an attack against “God and the humanity” and should be doomed.The Whitehouse has declared that they are by the side of Bangladesh and the international community.
