Meanwhile, a team of doctors headed by the police surgeon collected DNA samples of the charred bodies in the Edhi morgue.
“Since the bodies are not identifiable and all the tissues have burnt out, we have taken samples from bones, blood and teeth for DNA tests,” Dr Bashir Shaikh told Dawn.
The team of doctors comprising Dr Rashda, Dr Sarwar and Dr Imran collected the samples from the bodies and handed them over to the investigation officer of the case who is supposed to send them for DNA tests.
