KATHMANDU: The bodies of 14 people who died in the Yeti Airlines plane crash in Pokhara are yet to be identified.

Out of those brought to Kathmandu, the bodies of 14 people have yet to be identified. Gopal Kumar Chaudhary informed.

Because the body was badly burned, it was difficult to identify the body through forensic methods.

“Since those bodies were burnt excessively, we have a problem in identifying the bodies through forensic methods”, he said, “even till this evening we are trying to identify the bodies.”

According to him, if the body cannot be identified through forensic methods, it will be identified through DNA testing. The head of the department Dr. Chaudhary said.

He informed that it will take at least 22 days to identify the body through DNA test.

48 dead bodies were brought to Kathmandu for forensic examination. Similarly, 22 people were forensically examined in Pokhara.

On the 1st of January, a plane of Yeti Airlines, which was going from Kathmandu to Pokhara, had an accident in the gorge of the Seti River.

72 people including four crew members died in the accident.
