Two persons from Karnataka, K.G. Hanumanthrayappa and M. Ranganna, are among those confirmed to have died in the serial bomb blasts in Colombo on Sunday.

Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy said External Affairs Minister (EAM) Sushma Swaraj had confirmed the deaths of the two persons, both of whom are Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) party workers.

Mr. Kumaraswamy tweeted, “I am deeply in shock at the loss of our JDS party workers, whom I know personally. We stand with their families in this hour of grief,” he tweeted.

The two persons are believed to have been a part of a seven-member group of workers who had gone to the island nation on a holiday.
