New Delhi [India], Nov. 5 (ANI): External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday offered condolences to the family of an Indian-origin boy, who was shot dead in Kenya by the country's security forces on Saturday.

Bunty Shah, a Kenyan National of Indian-origin, was mistaken for a terrorist and shot dead by the security forces, who were conducting anti-terror operations in Nairobi, the country's capital.

Swaraj took to Twitter to assure help and assistance to the bereaved family from Indian High Commission in Nairobi.

The security forces were looking for terrorists on the building across Shah's residence. Bunty thought this as an intrusion by armed burglars and fired in the air. The forces retaliated the fire, killing Bunty on the spot.
