From Nanopolitan: nanopolitan: Terrorist attack in IISc
Yesterday night I was horrified to watch in the news a gun attack at IISc, where a conference on Operations Research was going on. The news anchors couldn't immediately get an idea on whether it was a crazy loony shooting someone or a calculated assassination attempt or an act of terrorism.
Subsequent details showed that an AK47 type automatic rifle was used, indicating that this is a terrorist attack aimed at creating terror and confusion amongst the researchers and teachers at premiere institutions in India.
Abi describes the scene first hand.
I offer my condolences to Prof. MC Puri's family. I hope other injured scientists recover speedily and survive this attack.
We hope that the police will act swiftly and nab the culprits and also catch the planners behind this act.
