DNA testing of PIA PK-661 victims underway

iSLAMABAD: Remains of victims of the PIA PK-661 have been brought to Islamabad for DNA testing.

Only eight people were identified and hence their bodies were given to the families after examination, while despite repeated calls from the hospital authorities to the heirs for submitting their DNA samples immediately for identification purposes, at least nine samples are yet to be received.

A PIA plane carrying 47 people crashed Wednesday on a domestic flight from the mountainous northern city of Chitral to Islamabad, killing all on board.

The plane took off from Chitral around 3:50PM and PIA said the plane crashed at 1642 local time (1142 GMT) in the Havelian area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, about 125 km north of Islamabad.
