NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday paid tribute to the victims of the Brussels terror attacks in which over 30 people, including an Indian, lost their lives.
Modi, who arrived in Brussels on a day-long visit to attend the India-EU Summit, laid a wreath at the Maalbeek Metro station in the Belgian capital where a suicide blew himself up killing scores of passengers, including Raghavendran Ganeshan, who was an Infosys employee from Bengaluru.
“At a time of grief, India stands in solidarity. Before official engagements, PM lays wreath at Maalbeek metro station,” External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.
