244 bodies biometrically identified at Edhi morgue

Karachi—As many as 244 bodies have been identified so far through biometrics identification system launched in the Edhi Welfare Foundation’s Morgue, which is the largest private sector mortuary in Karachi, said Incharge – Edhi Morgue Ghulam Hussain on Monday. He said that Edhi Foundation has introduced this system in coordination with the Citizens-Police Liaison Committee (CPLC) from this year.
Speaking about biometrics identification process, the Incharge Edhi Morgue told APP that we obtain finger prints of the body and provided it to the CPLC, which forwarded the same to the National Database and Registration Authority to check its databank for biometrically ascertaining for the identity of the deceased.
Ghulam Hussain pointed out that the CPLC is very helpful, particularly, in ascertaining the address of the bodies.
When we got the address of the deceased, it helped us a lot to contact the heirs and hand over the mortal remain to them, he added.
Speaking about the capacity of the Edhi Morgue, he said that it can accommodate over 300 bodies at a time.
It is pertinent to mention here that the project of biometrics identification of bodies was jointly launched by the CPLC in collaboration with Edhi Foundation.—APP
