The mortal remains of Raghavendran Ganeshan, an Infosys employee, who was killed in the Brussels attack, were brought to Chennai, on Tuesday, 29 March.

Ganeshan was found in a metro train at Malbeek station of Brussels on Monday.

Ganeshan’s mother, who lives in Mumbai, had told External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj that her son had called her via Skype an hour before the explosion and had said he would be taking the metro to work shortly.

The metro and the Zaventem airport in the Belgian capital came under attack, later claimed by ISIS, on Tuesday, 22 March. The attacks killed 35 people were leaving 100s injured. Security services found and destroyed a third bomb after the first two attacks.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa have expressed condolences after the MEA confirmed his death.

It is extremely tragic that Thiru (Mr) Raghavendran Ganeshan who was working in Brussels fell an innocent victim to a mindless act of terrorism. Ganeshan will always symbolise the hard work, diligence and spirit of enterprise that characterises knowledge workers from Tamil Nadu serving the global community.
J Jayalalithaa, Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu

Ganeshan’s family was sent to Brussels by the External Affairs Ministry within days of the attack.
