KARACHI: DNA samples of 49 people killed in the Karachi National Highway accident obtained.
According to media reports, samples of 49 people killed in a bus accident at Karachi National Highway have been obtained for the DNA test. The samples of 49 corpses which were transferred to morgue have been sent for the verification test. Three police officers including Sub-inspector Abdul Aziz, Shahadat Ali and Chand Muhammad will initiate legal action after the identification of the dead bodies in order to hand over the dead bodies to the relatives.
However, so far Police officers have been unsuccessful to arrest the accused bus driver. Moreover, a case has been registered in Memon Goth Police Station against the owner and the driver of the tanker.
“They are beyond recognition, they can only be identified by DNA test,” Doctor Semi Jamali at Jinnah Hospital Karachi said. Doctor Jamali said the bodies of at least six children were stuck to women who may have been their mothers, adding it was impossible to separate the remains.
