One more body has been recovered from the Yeti Airlines aircraft crash site in the Seti Gorge of Pokhara. Mortal remains of a woman were found some 300 meters below the crash site, Chief of the Kaski District Police Office, DSP Ajaya KC said.

According to him, the bodies of 71 deceased in the air crash that took place last Sunday have been so far recovered. Search for one missing is still underway, KC said.

The mortal remains of a body that were found scattered on Monday were sent to the Kathmandu-based Teaching Hospital for DNA test to confirm whether the parts are of the same person, he shared.

"Some parts of the hand, ribs, and head were found separately. The number of bodies recovered would reach 72 if the scattered remains were proved to be of two persons. Otherwise, the search operation would continue ", he added.

As informed post-mortems of 22 bodies were performed in the Pokhara-based Western Regional Hospital. Families and relatives have received 19 among them. Two of the three bodies in the hospital would be handed over on Wednesday and one after some days.

The bodies of those unidentified, foreign nationals and crew members have been sent to Kathmandu for a post-mortem on Tuesday.
