Mumbai: Jet Airways cabin crew Nidhi Chaphekar, who was grievously injured in the Brussels airport bombing, returned to Mumbai early on Friday. The 40-year-old was shifted to the Breach Candy hospital for further treatment.

Chaphekar had suffered over 15% burn injuries and a fractured foot due to the impact of the blast at Zaventem International Airport.

She had become the face of the Brussels terror attack after she was pictured with her shirt torn to shreds and blood dripping from her face.

She was under treatment at Brussels along with another Jet injured crew member Amit Motwani.

The suicide attacks in Brussels left 31 dead and 300 wounded besides leaving hundreds of flyers stranded due to the closure of the airport immediately after the explosions.
