BENGALURU: Infosys co-founder N.R. Narayana Murthy on Tuesday mourned the death of company employee Raghavendran Ganeshan in a terror attack in Brussels last week and condoled with his family.

"Raghavendra - a young Indian, a father, a husband, a son, a brother, and an Infoscion - was a victim of senseless violence. Nobody anywhere in the world deserves to be cut down with such violence," he said in a statement here.

The Software major's chief executive Vishal Sikka also paid tributes to Ganeshan.

"A great young life extinguished far too early. Profoundly sad at the senselessness yet thankful for the outpouring of condolences," Sikka said in a tweet.

The mortal remains of the 28-year-old software engineer reached Chennai earlier in the day from Amsterdam for the last rites.

Ganeshan's parents and younger brother Chandrasekaran accompanied the body, which was handed over to the family on Monday by the Belgian government.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted on Monday that Ganeshan was in the same metro rail coach in which the suicide bomber blew himself up on March 22 at Maelbeek station in Brussels, leaving 19 others dead and several injured.
