Raghavendran Ganeshan, an Infosys employee who went missing after the Brussels attack last week has been confirmed dead. The Infosys employee had been living in Brussels with his wife, who had recently come back to India and gave birth to the couple’s first child.
The Belgian government has confirmed that Ganeshan was one of the victims of the dastardly attacks, and the confirmation came after DNA tests.
The Indian embassy in Brussels tweeted, “RIP Raghvendran. The Belgian authorities have identified Raghavendran as one of the victims of barbarian terror attacks of March 22.” The Ministry of External Affairs said that the mortal remains were being handed over to the family at the Amsterdam airport.
Ajay Agrawal, second secretary (consular) told TOI, “The medical identification process in Belgium is very strict. The identification was established after DNA testing.“
Raghavendran Ganeshan who had worked with Infosys for over 4 years in Pune, left to Brussels for a project four years ago.
He disappeared in the aftermath of the bomb explosions in Brussels last Tuesday, and his brother Chandrasekar, who lives in Germany, flew to Brussels trying to find his brother.
The Indian Embassy in Belgium had been actively involved in the search for Raghavendran.
His last call had been traced to the metro station and he was travelling on the same route as the Maelbeek blasts.
Raghavendran’s family lives in Mumbai, while his wife and newborn child are based out of Chennai.
