With train communication snapped to Bhadrak and Balasore due to the accident, the Odisha government had decided to bring about 160 bodies to Bhubaneswar to make it easier of the bereaved families to claim them. “The unidentified bodies will be preserved for 42 hours. If no one will claim the bodies, we can dispose of those as per medical procedures,” Chief Secretary Pradeep Jena had said.
About 55 bodies have been identified and those were handed over to the family members after autopsy, the sources added.
Meanwhile, the list of deceased and the injured undergoing treatment at various hospitals have been uploaded on three websites – srcodisha.nic.in, bmc.gov.in and osdma.org to facilitate identification.
