Awami League leader Sheikh Selim’s son-in-law has been injured in the bomb attacks on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka, according to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Selim’s minor grandson has also been missing since the attacks, Hasina, who is a relative of the ruling party presidium member, told a programme in Brunei on Sunday, reports bdnews24.com.

MP Selim’s daughter Sheikh Sonia, her husband Moshiul Haque Chowdhary Prince, and their two sons went to visit Sri Lanka recently.

They were staying at Shangri-La hotel in Colombo that came under attack along with three churches and several hotels on Easter Sunday.

Speaking at a reception by expatriates The Empire Hotel and Country Club in Brunei, Hasina informed all about the incident and urged to pray.

 “Sheikh Selim’s daughter, son-in-law and two children were in Sri Lanka. The son-in-law, Prince, was injured when the restaurant was bombed. He has been hospitalised while there is no trace of the 8 and a half years old boy.

 “Please pray for their safe return,” Hasina said.
