Juhi Nagre, nine, had just finished vacationing with her mother Amanpreet Kaur and was on her way back to Aurangabad where she stayed with her paternal grandparents, when tragedy struck.
Kaur works as a cardio-anaesthetist at the Jayadeva Hospital. The girl’s father Sachin Nagre is an ENT specialist. She was a student of class five at Poudhar School in Aurangabad.
A piece of cloth worn by the girl that remained unburnt helped identify the body, said Dr Vijayakumar, who had come to the Victoria Hospital to claim the body on behalf of Juhi’s parents.
Kaur’s colleagues were seen making arrangements for Juhi’s body to be taken to Hingoli near Nanded, which is their native place.
The bodies of her grandparents are yet to be handed over to the family as the DNA test results are still not out.
Meanwhile, relatives of the other victims waited endlessly at the hospital.
While some of them were handed over the bodies, following the identification, others continued to wait as the DNA test results were yet to be released.
The kin of those who figured in the “missing or feared dead” list issued by the South Western Railway remained clueless about the whereabouts of their loved ones.
Police officials at the spot told Deccan Herald that people waited at the mortuary till 11 pm on Saturday night, returned home and came back as early as 6 am on Sunday.
