For identification of victims of last year`s Uttarakhand floods tragedy, city-based Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics (CDFD) and Uttarakhand government are trying to contact relatives of missing persons and obtain blood samples for DNA matching.
The Supreme Court on Monday sought
a response from the government for making DNA profiling of
unidentified dead bodies mandatory, which could effectively be
used for reaching out to their family members.
