Aldgate bomber buried in Pakistan
Friday 28 October 2005
Shahzad Tanweer, who blew up a Tube train at Aldgate station, killing seven, was the first of the four bombers who collectively killed 52, to be given a funeral.
Tanweer, 22, was born in Bradford and lived in Beeston in Leeds. His funeral was held in the village of Chhotian Kota, near the Samundari in Punjab province, where relatives from his family live.
A crowd of about 200, including Tanweer's father, Mumtaz Tanweer, attended his funeral yesterday, according to Salim Shah, an area police official. Tanweer's mother brought the remains of her son on a flight on Wednesday from London to Lahore, capital of the central province of Punjab, according to an Interior Ministry official.
The burial was arranged by Tanweer's uncle, who the former sports student visited last year, residents in the village said.
The Pakistani government has said Tanweer arrived in Pakistan in November last year together with Edgware Road bomber Mohammad Sidique Khan. They left after three months, having attended a terrorist training camp.
