INFOSYS TECHIEAn Indian employee of global software major Infosys Ltd. is missing in the aftermath of Tuesday's terror attacks in Brussels, the company said here on Wednesday. "We are trying to reach one employee with whom we have not been able to connect as with all other employees," the city-based IT outsourcing firm said in a statement, without specifying how many of its techies, including Indians, work in Brussels. Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj confirmed in a tweet that while no Indian casualties were reported, efforts were on to trace the techie.   Infosys Ltd claimed to be in touch with his/her family and working with the Indian embassy in the Belgian capital and local authorities to locate the missing techie on priority. "We reached out to all our employees in the city to ascertain their whereabouts and safety following the (terror) attacks in Brussels," the statement added. At least 35 people were killed and over 200 injured in triple explosions at Brussels airport and a metro station on Tuesday. The blasts are suspected to have been triggered by the Islamic State (IS) terror group.
