Thanks csm. I got a few more names, including Shashank Shinde, from Lokasatta. And B Durgunde from Abodh's StrayingAround, as you suggest. (I'm trying to find a first name).

Gajraj Singh

acrain, I think that's supposed to be Gajendra Singh, already listed here. I've seen the correction made in at least one online report.

csm, thanks! (Especially for Sadanand Date). I had heard some of those names yesterday (Bhosale, Pawar, Chaudhary), but I hadn't yet found confirmation.

I've changed the language of the post a bit as a result. Thing is, we now have 19 security people dead. Yet 16 was the number I heard the last few days. I imagine this kind of count takes a while to establish correctly.

Count my dear friends count. Please don't forget to add a line to remember the nameless & boardless ( as RK Narayan would put it)
