GENTING HIGHLANDS: Police have yet to identify six victims of the 37 dead bodies pulled out of the bus wreckage here.
Bentong OCPD Supt Mohd Mansor Mohd Nor said 20 bodies, 19 Malaysians and one Indonesian, have been claimed by their families.
"As for the remaining six, we are sifting through the clothes, valuables and documents found in the ravine to match them. I call on those missing relatives in Genting to come forward to assist in investigations," he said.
At the scene of the bus crash along KM3.5, a large tractor has been brought on site to hoist up the wreckage from the ravine.
Puspakom officials are also carrying on site investigations to ascertain what could have caused the crash.
It is expected that the wreckage will be taken to the Bentong police headquarters for further investigations.
When asked if police have spoken to the surviving victims from the crash, Supt Mohd Mansor said they would wait a few more days.
"Many are still recovering and are not in the right frame of mind to present their accounts yet," he said.
