Police have established the identity of the seventh person who died in the bus accident near Haveri on Thursday. They said Hemanth, a textile merchant from Surat, died in Thursday’s bus fire.

Police could identify only six bodies, that of Khaleem, his wife Sameera Banu, their three children Saif, Romaan and Amaan and stand -by driver Nayaz on Thursday. Based on the information provided by National Travels, the police identified Hemanth’s body and later informed his wife about it over phone.

One of Hemanth’s relatives told Express over phone, that Hemanth had gone to Bangalore for business related work. He left Surat sometime after Diwali and was on his way to Mumbai on Thursday.

“I heard about the death from his (Hemanth’s) wife around 8 pm on Thursday, who was informed by the police. We are shattered and cannot say anything else,” he said.

Meanwhile, doctors at the KIMS, Hubli, where the bodies have been kept, have sent the DNA samples (blood, bone marrow and muscle samples) of the bodies for tests to Bangalore Laboratory to establish the victims’ identity. Dr Gajanand Naik, Head of the Department, Forensic Medicine, said the results would come in a week. “Only after the report arrives will we be able to identify the bodies, which are kept in the cold storage,” he said.
