The body of city businessman Sudarshan B Nagraj, who was shot dead in Kenya's Westgate Mall terror attack, will be brought to the city on September 27.

Sudarshan  was one of the three Indians who were killed in the terror attack at the Westgate mall in Nairobi.

Sudarshan was running multi-business and flew to Nairobi on September 20 with regard to printing and publication business.

His elder brother Ram Prasad said Sudarshan was supposed to fly to Uganda on September 22 for another business.

Prasad said Sudarshan had contacted his family on September 21 enquiring about actor Dilip Kumar's health condition.

"The CEO of the hotel, where Sudarshan had checked in, told us that my brother had gone out on September 21 in the morning for shopping, keeping his bag back in the room," Prasad said.

When the family tried to contact Sudarshan on his mobile the same evening, it was unreachable and the next moment tension gripped family members, Prasad said.

Until September 23, the family members made several calls to the authorities concerned in Nairobi. Later, the family received a call from Indian Embassy in Nairobi about the tragic death of Sudarshan, Prasad said.

The Embassy officials said he was shot dead by Islamist terrorists at close range in his forehead, chest and under-arms in Westgate mall, Prasad said.
