POKHARA: The bodies of the people who died in the air crash involving a Yeti Airlines aircraft here on Sunday will be handed over to their relatives today.

Assistant Chief District Officer of Kaski Anil Shahi said that the bodies that have been identified will be handed over to the respective families after completing due procedures from 9:00 am today.

Likewise, preparations have been made to send the bodies of the unidentified, foreign nationals and of the people whose relatives in Kathmandu to the federal capital by a helicopter.

Out of the 72 people on board the aircraft, the bodies of 66 have been retrieved and taken to the Pokhara Institute of Health Sciences for examination.

Six more bodies are yet to be recovered. However, Assistant CDO Shahi shared that although three bodies were noticed they could not be brought due to the different topography of the crash site.

The rescue work in the Seti gorge was withheld due to geographical constraints last night and has resumed this morning, Shahi said.
