Prof Puri was killed and five others injured when an unidentified attacker opened indiscriminate fire outside the JN Tata Auditorium on the Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) campus in Bangalore on Wednesday evening.

Below is the full text of the NASSCOM statement:

NASSCOM expresses deep condolence to the bereaved family of Professor M C Puri and hopes for the well being of the other victims of the attack last evening at the Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) in Bangalore. We condemn this dastardly and shocking act. It is sad that this should happen in an academic institution, a place

where knowledge is created and disseminated for the benefit of all humanity.

Such incidents, which target innocent people for ulterior motives, are very

unfortunate. Sadly, such attacks have been taking place in cities around the world,

and it has become necessary to take precautions irrespective of where one is. The

Indian IT industry, located in many cities around the country, already has in place

many security measures. This incident emphasizes the need to review and upgrade

these. NASSCOM and the IT industry will work, in collaboration with the Police and

Government, towards tightening security measures to create a safer working

environment for the industry.
