After the startling revelation that PIA flight PK-661 flight crew members might have been drugged, the district administration and officials at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) have revealed that they would be conducting tests on samples collected from remains of the crew.
Aviation Division has directed the authorities that bodies of the flight crew should be exhumed to carry out all the relevant tests. District Health Officer wrote a letter to officials at PIMS, requesting for an autopsy of two flight attendants, flight pilots, and one flight officer. The testing has been entreated to affirm if the crew had been poisoned or not.
The bodies of the deceased will be exhumed to gauge out if they were taking drugs or were drugged during the flight duration, which led to the crash of plane leading to loss of 47 lives.
The direction for the exhumation of bodies was given by the senior joint director medical, Civil Aviation Authority at the Benazir Bhutto International Airport through the deputy commissioner. However, PIMS Administrator Dr. Altaf Hussain commented that he won’t be performing any procedure because the hospital administration has already taken samples from the crew members.
A French-built ATR-42 which departed to Islamabad from Chitral crashed near Havelian. The crash led to the loss of lives of 47 people, including Junaid Jamshed, his wife and Deputy Commissioner Chitral.
