DNA testing to identify bodies

October 30, 2005 23:01 IST

Hospitals are likely to use DNA testing to be used to identify bodies charred beyond recognition in the serial blasts, sources said on Sunday.

"All methods, including DNA testing, will be used to identify the bodies," Medical Superintendent of Safdarjung Hospital R N Salhan said.

Nineteen bodies at the hospital are yet to be identified, with more than two parties laying claim to some.

DNA testing may be the only way to settle the dispute, doctors said.
