Her hopes of being reunited with her grandson died long ago. Now, 71-year-old Kalyani Mukherjee only hopes to get a certificate declaring her grandson Sayan as “missing”.

Fourteen months after the Sarojini Nagar blast, Kalyani is yet to receive the compensation due to her after son Satyabrata and daughter-in-law Supriya died in the blast.

"I have submitted all the papers and the death certificates but have not yet received the compensation. My grandson too died in the blast but his body could not be identified. Since I live in Kolkata, I cannot run around for the compensation. I have just given up hope," said Kalyani.
