No survivors have been found at the crash site in Nepal, a day after a private plane – with 22 on board, including four Indians – met with an accident in a mountainous region of the country amid bad weather.

The search and rescue efforts had resumed on Monday morning, hours after a halt due to challenges faced by the teams. A team of 15 Nepali Army soldiers has been dropped near the crash site to retrieve the bodies on Monday. The crash site lies at an elevation of about 14,500 feet while the team has been dropped at 11,000 meters height, the army spokesperson said.

Fourteen bodies were recovered initially from the wreckage of the Tara Air plane that crashed into a mountainside after the search and rescue efforts resumed on Monday morning. “Fourteen bodies have been recovered so far, search continues for the remaining. The weather is very bad but we were able to take a team to the crash site. No other flight has been possible,” civil aviation authority spokesman Deo Chandra Lal Karn told news agency AFP.
