ABBOTTABAD: The mother of Naeem Rasheed, who died in New Zealand mosque shooting along with his son Talha Naeem, and her other son left for Lahore on Sunday to take a flight to Christchurch on Monday morning to attend their funeral.

Amna Sardar, first cousin of late Rasheed, a former MPA, has appreciated the efforts of the federal government for quick arrangements of visa for the grieved family, providing an opportunity to ill-fated mother and her son to visit the family in New Zeeland to attend the funeral prayers.

Meanwhile, a large number of people continued pouring at the residence of Rasheed for the second day to offer Fateha.
