Dead bodies being airlifted

Feb 28,2019-

Nepal Army (NA) is sending the dead bodies of those killed in the chopper crash, including Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Rabindra Adhikari to Kathmandu today.

The NA’s chopper on Wednesday evening could only hook four dead bodies from the  crash site to Suketar Airport. The task of collecting dead bodies remained affected and incomplete  due to the rain and snowfall in that area.

After efforts to pick remaining dead bodies from the site were not materialized last evening, preparation now is being carried out to hook the bodies through NA chopper.

According to Arjanu Bhandari, Chief District Officer dead bodies will be sent to Kathmandu once brought to Suketar Airport.

The chopper carrying a team including Minster Adhikari had crashed at Darebhir of Taplejung on Wednesday while returning Kathmandu via Pathibhara after undertaking an on-site feasibility study of airport construction in Chuhandanda of Terhathum.
