Brussels terror: 'Any news of mama?', asks child of wounded Jet manager

Mumbai: Tuesday was like any other day at the Chaphekars' Andheri residence until family members received an overseas phone call at 1 pm.
The call was from Brussels. The family was informed that blasts at the airport had wounded Nidhi Chaphekar 41, a Jet Airways inflight manager who had flown to the European city a day earlier.
Nidhi and another employee, Amit Motwani, were wounded in the blasts.
The Chaphekars stayed glued to the television after that, breaking into tears often, as they waited for a call from Nidhi. After an agonizing wait, Nidhi's family learned on Tuesday evening that she had been admitted to a hospital in Antwerp.
"She was being operated upon for injuries and burns. We hope to talk to her once the surgery is done," said Rupesh Chaphekar, Nidhi's husband.
"For the whole day we did not have any information. All they told us was she is safe. But how do I know if they are not just giving us false hopes? I just want to hear her voice once. Only the airline's base manager is contacting us with information. We are not able to get through any of the helpline numbers," said Rupesh, a businessman.
