Bodies of the seven persons, including Tourism Minister Rabindra Adhikari who lost their lives in yesterday’s chopper crash in Pathibhara region, have been taken to Suketar Airport in Taplejung by Nepal Army.

Bodies of four crash victims had been taken to Suketar following the crash yesterday while bodies of three others have been taken there from the incident site by Nepal Army today morning despite bad weather conditions.

Chief District Officer of Taplejung, Anuj Bhandari, informed that the bodies were brought to the airport in Nepal Army’s helicopter.

According to him, weather condition has still not improved at the airport region due to which security personnel have to wait for improvement in weather to lift the bodies to Kathmandu.

The CDO further informed that bodies of all deceased including the tourism minister would be sent to Kathmandu today itself after completing due procedures at Suketar Airport.

The Air Dynasty chopper — carrying seven people including Minister Adhikari and the pilot — was on its way to Kathmandu via Pathibhara region after completing inspection of an under-construction airport at Chuhan Danda of Tehrathum when it crashed in Darebheer of Taplejung. No one survived the crash.
