Anguished relatives of Nukavarapu Manisha, who was killed in the Ethiopian Airlines plane crash, Tuesday sought the Centre's help in getting her body transported to Nairobi in Kenya where her parents are staying.
The family belongs to Guntur in Andhra Pradesh, where Manisha completed her MBBS from the prestigious Guntur Medical College.
She had been staying in the US for the past five years, pursuing her post-graduation and working as a resident physician in the Department of Internal Medicine at Quillen College of Medicine, East Tennessee State University.
Relatives feel it would be difficult to bring Manishas body, which might have been mangled in the crash, to Guntur.
"Since her parents and eldest sister are in Nairobi, her mortal remains may be handed over to them there. Given the nature of the accident, it may be difficult to bring the remains here," one of her relatives here said.
The Indian High Commission in Nairobi is said to be coordinating with Manishas family in the matter.
Four Indians, including a UN consultant attached with the Environment Ministry, were among the 157 people killed when a Nairobi-bound Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed after taking-off from Addis Ababa on Sunday.
The deceased Indian nationals were Shikha Garg,United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) consultant attached with the Environment Ministry,Pannagesh Bhaskar Vaidya and Hansini Pannagesh Vaidya and Nukavarapu Manisha.
