‘UK willing to support probe into US-Bangla plane crash’
The British civil aviation authorities have showed their willingness to render assistance to a committee formed to conduct a probe into the US-Bangla plane crash, said Bangladesh Ambassador Nepal, Mashfi Binte Shams. The probe body was comprised of six officials from the Nepal civil aviation authorities and three from Bangladesh. Forty-nine people were killed as the in-fated aircraft crashed and burst into flames at Tribhuvan International Airport in the capital of Himalayan county Nepal on March 12. The plane was carrying 71 people, including four cabin crews. Of the passengers, 36 were from Bangladesh, 33 from Nepal and one each from China and the Maldives. Among the dead, 26 were Bangladeshis, 22 Nepalese and the other was Chinese. The bodies of the Nepali and Chinese were already handed over to their relatives. On Monday, 23 bodies of the 26 Bangladeshis were brought back home by a cargo plane of Bangladesh Air Force. Mashfi said the identification process of the remaining three Bangladeshis –Alifuzzaman, Mohammad Nazrul Islam and Pias Roy – is underway. “The identification process of one of the three Bangladeshis is in its final stage. We hope to be able to disclose his identity within two or so days,” she added. Asked about the other two Bangladeshis, the ambassador said the team concerned with the identification process had collected information about their physical characteristics. “If the team members are still unable to identify them, they will collect DNA samples.” The entire process might take 10 to 21 days, she added.
