(ABC News) Two students from Emory University and one from University of California, Berkeley, were among those taken hostage and killed at an upscale restaurant in the capital of Bangladesh, the schools said Saturday.
Tarishi Jain, a sophomore at University of California, Berkeley, was in Dhaka for an internship through the college that began in early June. Jain, an Indian national, was a graduate of the American International School of Dhaka, and her father is a textile merchant based in the Bangladeshi capital. She was intending to major in economics at Berkeley, the school said.
"We are all very devastated to hear the news about Tarishi Jain. She was a smart and ambitious young woman with a big heart. Our deepest condolences to her family, friends, and the entire Berkeley community," Sanchita Saxena, executive director of the UC Berkeley's Institute for South Asia Studies and director of the Center for Bangladesh Studies, said in a statement.
