Kolkata, July 2 (IBNS):West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday mourned the loss of lives in the militant attack in Bangladesh capital Dhaka.

Banerjee said all should unite to fight against terrorists.

"Condolences to families of those who lost lives in Bdesh. We r with u. We pray for peace/harmony in holy month of Ramzaan. We condemn terror," the Chief Minister tweeted.

"Terrorism has no boundaries. Terrorism has no religion. So let us fight and defeat the inhuman terrorists together, so humanity wins," she said.

The Bangladeshi Army on Saturday said that 20 foreigners were killed by heavily armed terrorists suspected to belong to terror outfit ISIS after being taken hostage at a restaurant in the capital city Dhaka on Friday evening.
The people were kept hostage for nearly 10 hours in Dhaka's upscale restaurant Gulshan. The stand-off between Army and terrorists came to a end on Saturday morning.

An Indian girl, who was taken hostage in the restaurant, also died in the terror attack in Dhaka, Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj confirmed.

Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday said that a terrorist was caught alive.

As the operation came to an end, 13 captives, including three foreigners, were rescued.
