Pakistani-born Christchurch victim Areeb’s body to arrive in Karachi today

The body of late Syed Areeb Ahmed, one of the 50 people martyred in the gruesome Christchurch massacre, is scheduled to arrive in Pakistan today (Monday) as the repatriation process gets underway for foreign nationals who were shot dead on March 15.

The body will be flown in via EK-600 to the Jinnah International Airport and is expected to arrive around 10:30AM. It will be received by his father, Syed Ejaz Ahmed, and taken to Federal B. Area, the neighborhood he resided in.

The only son of his parents, Karachi-born Ahmed, 27, was a chartered account by profession. His first funeral prayers were offered on March 21 in New Zealand and the second one will be offered here in Sangam Ground in the metropolis’ Dastagir No. 9.

The funeral prayers are slated to take place at 3PM after Zuhr, and he will be laid to rest in the Sakhi Hassan graveyard.
