Forty-eight bodies of those killed in the crash of the Yeti Airlines plane (ATR-72) in Pokhara last Sunday have been brought to Kathmandu.

Issuing a press release on Tuesday, Yeti Airlines shared that 48 bodies retrieved from the crash site in the Seti River gorge of Pokhara were brought to Kathmandu.

The mortal remains were airlifted to Kathmandu via two helicopters of the Nepal Army this afternoon. However, a post-mortem will be performed on the bodies today.

The bodies have been kept at the moratorium of Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital in Maharajgunj.

As the task of counseling the families and relatives of the deceased was done today, the post-mortem procedure could not be started, the TUTH sources said.

As informed, the bodies would be handed over to the families and relatives after body identification and examination.

According to Yeti Airlines, 71 out of the 72 passengers and crew members have been confirmed dead in the air crash, and a search for the missing one is underway.
