It was a fatal evening out for a group of three friends and a brother-sister duo who went to the German Bakery here on Saturday evening.

The terror strike at the German Bakery killed nine people and left at least 57 injured.
Special Inspector General of Police (Law and Order) Rashmi Shukla told reporters that among the nine killed, seven had been identified.

The siblings, Anik Dar, 24, and Anandi Dar, 19, were both residents of Kolkata. Anik was working in a firm in Mumbai, while his sister was a student of Fergusson College here.
Three friends, P. Sundari, 22, Vinita Gadani, 22, and Shilpa Goenka, 23, were also killed in the blast, which took place when a waiter tried to open an unclaimed bag left under a table at the popular eatery.

While Sundari was from Bangalore, Gadani was originally from Mumbai and Goenka from Kolkata. Sundari and Gadani also worked in the same office in a private firm here, while Goenka was working in Mumbai.

One of the victims was a 40-year-old man called Shankar, who worked in the bakery.
