The number of Indians killed in the terror bombings in Sri Lanka has risen to 10, with two more victims identified, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said Tuesday.

The two Indians have been identified as A Maregowda and H Puttaraju.

 

The Indians are among over 30 foreigners killed in Sunday’s serial bomb attacks on churches and hotels across Sri Lanka, which claimed 310 lives and injured more than 500 people.

Six Janata Dal (Secular) workers from Karnataka were among the Indians killed. They were on a break after working in the Lok Sabha elections and had gone to Sri Lanka for the Easter weekend.

The group was staying at the Shangri-La hotel in the Sri Lankan capital when a suicide bomber attacked the hotel as guests sat down to a buffet breakfast.

 A woman from Kerala, P.S. Raseena, was also killed.

The dead JD-S members have been identified as L. Ramesh Gowda, 44, from Tumakuru, K.M. Lakshminarayan, 53, and H. Shivakumar, 62, owner of Harsha Hospital from Nelamangala, realtors K. H. Hanumantharayappa, 53, M. Rangappa, 47, and Maaregowda, 45, — all from Bengaluru.

 

Suicide bombers attacked St. Anthony’s Shrine in Colombo, St. Sebastian’s in Negambo, Zion Church in Batticaloa, the Shangri-La, Cinnamon Grand, and Kingsbury hotels in Colombo on Sunday.

 The Sri Lankan Government has imposed emergency in the country.
