Altogether 23 dead bodies still remain unclaimed at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) in Maharajgunj awaiting identification even five weeks after the April 25 Great Earthquake.

Eight of the bodies are appendages and other body parts while the rest are whole body, according to the Nepal Police. Deputy Inspector General Kamal Singh Bam, spokesperson of Nepal Police, said all the bodies that could not be identified in the districts have been brought to the TUTH.

“Although we have put the details of the dead bodies that still remain unclaimed and unidentified on our website and trying to reach to as many people as possible, the effort seems to be of little or no avail,” said DIGBam.  He said the Nepal Police has also formed a special team comprising of forensic experts to help with the body identification process.
