The Ministry of External Affairs said the mortal remains of Raghvendra are in the process of being handed over to his family who will be leaving for India from Amsterdam airport.
Offering “heartfelt condolences” to the bereaved family, Indian External Affairs Minister (MEA) Mrs. Sushma Swaraj tweeted, “Unfortunately, he was travelling in the same coach of the metro in which the suicide bomber blew himself up”. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi also extended condolences to the family of Raghavendra. The Indian OM tweeted, “A young life, full of hope & promise cut short by mindless violence, condolences to family of Raghavendran, who lost his life in Brussels”.
