Belgian authorities have identified Raghavendran Ganeshan, an Infosys employee who had been missing ever since the terror attacks in Brussels on March 22, as one of the blast victims, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said Monday.

“He was travelling in the same coach of the metro in which the suicide bomber blew himself up,” Swaraj wrote on Twitter. “His mortal remains are being handed over to the family in Brussels.”

Sources said Ganeshan’s body could not be identified earlier and that Belgian hospital authorities had to take the family’s help for identification. Ganeshan’s parents and brother had travelled to Brussels after the attack.

At least 35 people were killed and over 300 wounded after two bombs exploded at Brussels airport and one at Maelbeek metro station.


Ganeshan visited India last month when his wife gave birth. He had spoken to his mother, who lives in Mumbai, on Skype before he left for work last Tuesday morning — about an hour before the explosions.

After he went missing, Swaraj had posted his photograph on social media and appealed for help to find him.

Ganeshan was with the Infosys Ltd centre at Pune before being deployed to Brussels for a project with Belgian telecom major Proximus or Belgacom Mobile. He had been in Brussels for the last four years.
