Mangalore crash: DNA tests fail to match eleven bodies

Mangalore, Wed, 02 Jun 2010 ANI

Mangalore (Karnataka), June 2 (ANI): Eleven bodies of victims killed in last month's ill-fated Mangalore plane crash have been declared unidentified as the final DNA report of those bodies failed to match with samples collected from relatives.


Mangalore City Police Commissioner Seemanth Kumar Singh said that 34 relatives had given samples for DNA tests.


"It is also certified from the DNA profiling results that the following eleven unidentified bodies remains are not related to any of the 34 claimant relatives whose blood samples were used for analysis and comparisons," said Singh.


Singh further said the report does not mention the actual reason why claimant relatives' samples did not match with the DNA of the dead.


"Another report with more details, including what could be the reason of mismatch, is expected to arrive soon," he added.


The district administration will carry out a mass burial of these unclaimed bodies here on Wednesday.


The Air India Express flight from Dubai to Mangalore that crashed while landing at the Mangalore airport on May 22 claimed 158 lives.


DNA profiling (also called DNA testing, DNA typing, or genetic fingerprinting) is a technique employed by forensic scientists to assist in the identification of individuals on the basis of their respective DNA profiles. (ANI)
