They have confirmed this Tuesday the recovery of the bodies of all the occupants of the plane that crashed on Sunday in the country, after finding the remains of the device during the day on Monday in a mountainous area of the town of Sanosware.
“The last body has been recovered,” Nepali Army spokesman Narayan Silwal said in a brief message on his Twitter account. Likewise, he explained that the last twelve recovered bodies are transferred to the capital, Kathmandu.
The airline and the Nepal Civil Aviation Authority released the names of those killed in the crash on Monday, including two German citizens and four Indians. The rest of the occupants of the device were Nepalese.
The aircraft, a Twin Otter model with 19 passengers and three crew members on board, was operating the flight from Pojara – a popular tourist resort some 200 kilometers west of Kathmandu – to Jomsom, but disappeared a few minutes after takeoff. This route is one of the most accident recorded in the history of Nepal.
At the moment the causes of the incident are unknown, although the authorities have already opened an investigation. According to information from the newspaper ‘The Kathmandu Post’, since 1955 there have been more than a hundred plane crashes in Nepal, with more than 860 deaths to date.
