The Infosys employee who was reported missing after the Brussels attacks, Raghavendran Ganeshan, has been confirmed dead, Manjeev Singh Puri, India's Ambassador to Belgium and the EU, told the press. Blasts at Zaventem airport and the Malbeek metro station killed more than 30 people from some 40 countries. The Belgian authorities identified him as a victim on Monday and his remains are being handed over to his parents and brother, who are here in Brussels.
Earlier, Mr. Ganeshan's mother, who had also spoken to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that her son had called her via Skype an hour before the explosion, and said he would be taking the metro to work shortly. Mr. Ganeshan's wife and their infant son are in Chennai at present. Having joined Infosys for training in Bengaluru and Pune, Mr. Ganeshan was sent to Belgium nearly four years ago to work with a telecommunications company there. His colleagues in Brussels, who were contacted by The Hindu, said the blast at the metro station was on the route he took daily for work.
