Cut Shanti, was one of the survivors of the attack, which left 32 dead and more than 300 injured.

Shanti even attended psychiatric treatment units, but could not contain her depression. She attempted suicide on two occasions: 2018 and 2020. She decided to opt for euthanasia, which is legal in Belgium, and died on May 7, 2022. However, the story only came to light this week, when her mother reported the case to the Belgian channel VRT. “That day really broke her, she never felt safe after that,” her mother said. “She didn’t want to go anywhere other people were out of fear. She also had frequent panic attacks and never got rid of it,” she continued.
