Former Team India spinner Harbhajan Singh felt his anguish and disappointment at the terror attack in two renowned mosques in Christchurch in New Zealand.

Thoughts and prayers are with all the victims.”

Harbhajan Singh was one of the finest Indian spinners

Harbhajan Singh was one of the finest Indian spinners during his heydays. Along with Anil Kumble, he forged a formidable partnership and tormented many batting line-ups. The famous Ricky Ponting was one of the bunnies for Harbhajan during his illustrious career. Nhajji will again be seen in action during the IPL.

In the most deadly terror attacks in Christchurch in New Zealand 49 people have been killed and at least 20 wounded. It was a deadly attack on two mosques in Christchurch. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison gave the description of one alleged terrorist who had Australian citizenship. He described the alleged gunman as an extremist, right-wing terrorist. A man who was in his late twenties was charged with murder. He is expected to appear in court on Saturday morning.

Two other men and a woman were also arrested and their firearms were also seized. The news was broken by Police Commissioner Mike Bush. He further stated that the police conceded that one of the people who was detained was not involved in the incident. The police officers were trying to get an idea if the other two were involved in the incident.  The shooting was the deadliest in the history of the country.

One of the gunmen live streamed the footage of the firing. He filmed with a head-mounted camera.
