“With a very heavy heart we share the news of loss of precious lives of our five nationals — Maheboob Khokhar, Ramiz Vora, Asif Vora, Ansi Alibava and Ozair Kadir — in the ghastly terror attack,” the Indian Mission tweeted.

“Our helpline numbers (021803899 and 021850033) will remain available round the clock to assist families as we together cope with our shared grief,” it said.
