38 DNA samples sent to lab to identify bus crash victims

The DNA samples of 38 out of 41 bodies of the Lasbela bus crash have been sent for to the Karachi University lab for examination to identify the victims.

The samples were sent to the DNA Forensics and Serology Laboratory and the DNA samples of 25 victims’ family members were taken at Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre to help identify the bodies. The bodies were later shifted to a Edhi morgue.

At least 41 people were killed after a passenger coach with 48 on board fell into a ravine in Balochistan’s Lasbela district on Sunday morning. The tragic accident took place due to speeding and the vehicle caught fire after it ran off the road and overturned. The bus was on its way to Karachi from Quetta.
