Even the Westgate Shopping Mall was cleared of the hostages, a sad news came from Nairobi that another India was found dead in the carnage, which left 62 people dead and over 150 injured. With this, the death toll of India has risen to three.
The victim was identified as Sudharshan B.Nagaraj from Bangalore. Earlier, Sridhar Natarajan (40) and Paramshu Jain (8) were killed. Ruhila Adatia-Sood, a popular RJ of Indian origin also died in the terror attack. She was married to Ketan Sood, who works for USAid in Nairobi. Ruhila was one among the 10 Indian-origin people, who were killed in the attack.
Even though five terrorists were gunned down and eleven others were captured in the military operation at the Mall, it is not immediately known whether the shopping complex was completely secured or not. Some gunfights were reported from the same Mall earlier today. Somalia-based terror outfit Al-Shabab was behind the heinous attack, which occurred late on Saturday.
