DNA tests of six, among those killed in the January 15 Yeti air crash have begun, as the forensic identification was not possible due to excessive burns.

The test procedures began in the Central Police Forensic Science Lab. Samples collections of the families and DNA extractions from bones and teeth of the mortal remains were sent to the lab for the tests.

It takes at least two weeks to identify the mortal remains through DNA procedures.

Of 48 bodies brought to Kathmandu from Pokhara, identity of 42 was established through forensic tests and finger prints.
