The parents of an Indian-origin software engineer who went missing after the shooting during Friday prayers at a mosque in Christchurch in New Zealand are still clueless about his whereabouts even after a day.
The engineer, Farhaj Ahsan, has been working in New Zealand for the past seven years. He is married and has two children.
“We are yet to get information about my son. We are concerned about him,” Ahsan’s mother Fatima said.
Hyderabad MP and AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi tweeted, “Farhaj Ahsan, a person of Indian origin, was also reported to have gone to the same mosque and is currently missing. His family is in Hyderabad, I request immediate assistance to his family as well.”

Meanwhile, Ahmed Iqbal Jahangir, another Indian from Hyderabad, who was shot at in the same incident is recovering in hospital in New Zealand, his brother Khursheed Jahangir said.
“I thank the government for helping me get a visa to New Zealand. I am leaving today to see my brother. He is out of danger and recovering,” Khursheed said.
Iqbal Jahangir was shot in the chest, he said.
