    Hyderabad: A man from Hyderabad was among those shot at in the horrific massacre at one of the two mosques in New Zealand's Christchurch city on Friday.

    Ahmed Jehangir, who was at Al Noor Mosque for Friday prayers, was injured and taken to hospital, his brother Khursheed Iqbal Jehangir told IANS in Hyderabad.

    "My brother was shot in his chest. A video I received shows him lying on stretcher," Khursheed said.

    Ahmed, settled in New Zealand for 15 years, runs a Hyderabadi food restaurant near Al Noor Mosque. His family members were safe.

    An anxious Khursheed was waiting for more information from New Zealand. He wants to rush to New Zealand to be with his brother and sought help of Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi.

    Owaisi tweeted to Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj and Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao about the incident.

    Ahmed's brother would like to go to New Zealand for his family, Owaisi said.

    The Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) president requested Sushma Swaraj and Telangana CM to make necessary arrangements for Khursheed's travel to New Zealand.

    Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Working President K. T. Rama Rao said he would request NRI department to help the family.
