KLANG - Selangor Police Chief Datuk Hussein Omar Khan says that all identification and post-mortem processes went smoothly and ended earlier than scheduled.

Hussein, who addressed the media at the Hospital Tunku Ampuan Rahimah (HTAR) forensics department compound, also stated that all the remains matched the DNA of the identified victims.

"The postmortem and identification processes were indeed complex due to the nature of the disaster.

"That is why it has taken us three days since the crash to identify all the victims.

"But all procedures were eased, and we have completed the postmortem one day earlier than expected," he said.

He said it is confirmed that only 10 individuals were involved in the crash, and there are no more victims identified.

The Selangor Police Chief also implored the public to come forward if they had any new recordings or witnessed the disaster.

The remains were released to their surviving family members today, he said.
