The mortal remains of 19-year-old Tarishi Jain, who was killed along with 20 hostages in the attack on a cafe in Dhaka's high security diplomatic zone on Friday, were consigned to flames at a crematorium in Gurgaon on Monday.
Tarishi Jain, who had come home from the U.S. for summer vacations, had gone out to Holey Artisan Bakery with two of her friends on Friday evening when the terrorists stormed it. On Saturday, she was among the first victims of the Dhaka’s siege to be identified. Her friends Abinta Kabir and Faraaz Hossain were also killed in the attack.
Her father, Sanjeev Jain, has been running a garment business in Dhaka for over a decade.
