Raghavendran Ganesh, an Infosys employee working in Brussels for the last four years, has been missing since Wednesday’s blasts in the Belgian capital.


According to reports, his mother spoke to him about an hour before news of the blasts started coming in. Ganesh has not been heard from since.

Infosys has said that they have information that all the employees of the company in Belgium are safe except Ganesh, whose whereabouts are not known.

It has been more than 24 hours since the blasts. Around 35 people have been killed in the blasts – two of which rocked the Brussels airport and one was at the Maelbeek metro station.

Ganesh’s mother said that her son used to take the same metro route on which the station falls.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has tweeted that the government is doing everything possible to locate Ganesh.


Swaraj tweeted that she had a word with Ganesh’s mother. She also urged people to help the Indian government locate the missing techie.



Ganesh’s pregnant wife was living with him in Brussels. She had recently come down to Chennai for delivery.

Two other Indians – Jet Airways crew members Nidhi Chaphekar and Amit Motwanai — who were injured in the explosions at Zaventem airport are now recovering well.


Meanwhile, the authorities in Brussels have launched a massive manhunt for a suspect on the run. Authorities confirmed that the suicide bombers were brothers Khalid and Brahim el-Bakraoui.
