Odisha train mishap: Body mix-up adds to agony for victims' families

Bhubaneswar/IBNS: The agony of the families who have lost loved ones in the three-train accident in Odisha continues as they struggle to claim the bodies even days after the mishap.

Several families in Bhubaneswar claimed that the bodies of their loved ones have been released to someone else.

Others have been waiting for days, only to be told by authorities that the bodies will be handed over only after the results of a DNA test are out.

The Commissioner of the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation Tuesday that the delays are happening as they are getting some relatives who are not blood relations.

Authorities said a DNA test is necessary to ensure that the process remains transparent and error-free.

They have, however, refused to confirm the claims of the families who said that the bodies have been given to someone else and said that DNA tests are awaited.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is investigating the three-train tragedy in Odisha's Balasore, which left 275 dead and around 1,000 injured.

Odisha Chief Secretary Pradeep Jena said today that 83 bodies are yet to be identified.
