The bodies of Nazrul Islam, Pias Roy and Alifuzzaman were identified and the bodies would soon be sent home, she said.
“There is no other barrier to send their bodies to Bangladesh,” the ambassador said. “We have already talked with the US-Bangla Airlines’ authority and they are working on this matter.”
