Melbourne, December 8
Brenton Tarrant, the Australian-born attacker who killed 51 Muslim worshippers at two mosques in Christchurch last year, travelled around the world, including India where he spent nearly three months, before moving to New Zealand to carry out the country’s worst massacre, according to a report released today.
Five Indians were among those killed in the attack on March 15 last year.
The 792-page Royal Commission of Inquiry report said, “He travelled extensively using money from his father. The longest visit he made to any one country was to India where he stayed between November 21, 2015, and February 18, 2016.” — PTI
