1 of the victims in Mumbai attacks was Chicagoan

CHICAGO (AP) -- One of the victims of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India, was a Chicago resident who worked for a company that provides radiation therapy for cancer patients.

A spokeswoman for the company says Sandeep "Sam" Jeswani was traveling in Mumbai on business when he was killed.

Donna Schulz of Madison, Wis.-based TomoTherapy Inc. says the 43-year-old was born in India, and she says she believes he moved to the United States when he was about 12.

Jeswani was among at least 170 people killed in the attacks.

The State Department hasn't listed Jeswani among the six Americans it says were killed in the attacks.
