The mortal remains of Indian teenager Tarishi Jain, who was among those hacked to death by Islamic militants in a terror attack at a Dhaka restaurant, will be brought here tomorrow, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said.

"It is a case of brutal killing — an unnatural death. Some legal procedure has (to) be completed," the Minister said on Twitter.

Swaraj said that Tarishi's body will be taken to Delhi by plane on Monday. "This is with concurrence of Tarishi's father."

"The family will take the mortal remains to Ferozabad (UP)," she added.

Tarishi, a student at UC Berkeley, was on vacation in Dhaka. Her father runs a garment business in Bangladesh for the last 15-20 years, according to officials here.

Swaraj said the country is with Tarishi's family in this hour of grief and visa has been arranged for them.

Twenty foreigners, including eight Italians, seven Japanese and the Indian student, were brutally murdered by the militants inside the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka's diplomatic zone before commandos launched an assault yesterday, killing six attackers and capturing one alive, ending Bangladesh's worst terror attack.

The bodies of the victims were recovered during a search in the Bakery compound after the operation.
