New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday confirmed the two Janta Dal (Secular) party workers, KG Hanumantharayappa and M Rangappa were among five Indians killed in a string of blasts that hit Sri Lanka on Sunday.  

Confirming and pouring in condolence over the death of the two Kannadigas, Party chief and Karnataka Chief minister H D Kumaraswamy tweeted, "I'm deeply shocked at the loss of our JD(S) party workers, whom I know personally. We stand with their families in this hour of grief".  

Earlier, Kumaraswamy informed that a party delegation was missing after the ghastly attack at churches, hotels and various other spots across the country on an Easter Sunday.

"I'm shocked to hear that a 7-member team of JDS workers from Karnataka, who were touring Colombo (Sri Lanka), has gone missing after bomb blasts. Two of them are feared killed. I'm in constant touch with the Indian High Commission on reports of those missing." 

On Sunday, the Lankan government announced a curfew and shut down social media.

The curfew was lifted this morning at 6. 

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks.
