The mortal remains of all the 13 people, who were onboard the crashed Indian Air Force AN 32 helicopter, have been recovered from the accident site at Siang district in Arunachal Pradesh. Defence sources said that a team of 19 trekkers recovered the bodies.
The team, which included Garud commandos and Special Forces of the Army, started the mission to recover the bodies last week on Wednesday, a day after the wreckage was spotted. The mission was affected due to inclement weather.
The helicopter lost contact on its way to Mechuka from Jorhat on the 3rd of this month. It took 8 to 9 days for the specialised team to recover the bodies of 13 air warriors from the crash site.
