No report of Indians killed in Paris: Indian embassy

Paris, Nov 14 (IANS) There is no report yet of any Indian killed or wounded in the deadly Paris terror attacks, the Indian embassy here said on Saturday.

“As of now there is no report of any Indian being killed,” Deputy Chief Manish Prabhat told TimesNow television channel.

He said since the embassy staff was not allowed to go out due to restrictions imposed by French authorities, “we don’t have a ground report and there is no independent way of finding it out”.

Prabhat said Paris was home to some 100,000 Indians.

Earlier, Indian ambassador Mohan Kumar tweeted: “We hope all Indians are safe.

“Our prayers (are) with families affected and solidarity with France,” he added.

Terrorists unleashed mayhem at multiple targets in Paris on Friday night, leaving 153 people dead and over 200 injured, some 80 critically.
