Itanagar/New Delhi: A relative and panchayat leader of Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu’s Assembly constituency has identified his body, according to Union minister for development of north eastern region B K Handique.
He told reporters that the panchayat leader Thupten has identified the body of 56-year-old Dorjee while the other four bodies have been charred beyond recognition.
The minister, however, said that only after the divisional commissioner takes charge of the body and the formalities are completed, they could officially confirm news about Dorjee.
Asked about the successor to Dorjee, he said, “Everything will be taken care of.”
The single engine four-seater Pawan Hans helicopter with Dorjee and four others on board went missing soon after taking off from Tawang on Saturday.
Besides Khandu, others on board were pilots Captain J S Babbar, Captain T S Mamik, Khandu’s security officer Yeshi Choddak and Yeshi Lhamu, sister of Tawang MLA Tsewang Dhondup.
Inclement weather had prevented teams from carrying out aerial searches.
