Kerala PG student killed in New Zealand firing

Ancy Ali, a 25-year-old Keralite female student, was among the 49 people killed in the horrific terror attack on two mosques in Christchurch on Friday, the Kerala Police said.

Ancy was doing her post-graduation in Christchurch and was living with her husband Abdul Nassar near the mosques where the firings took place.

Speaking to IANS, an officer at the Kodungalloor police station, from where the couple hails, said the Special Branch of the police informed them about the casualty.

"They migrated to New Zealand last year. While she was a student, her husband was working there. We received the news that a woman from here was injured in the shooting. We have now received the news that she has passed away," said the officer who did not wish to be named.
