WWII remains discovered in northeastern India
A US team visiting India’s north-eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh has recovered what it says are possible remains of US soldiers who died in a plane crash during World War Two, BBC wrote.
Residents of Lower Dibang Valley handed over the remains to the team recently.
Last year, the team had recovered some remains from the same region, and work is being carried out to identify them, according to the BBC.
It is thought the remains of up to 400 Americans could still be in the remote state, which borders Myanmar and China, it added.
Many more servicemen went missing during allied operations to supply China’s Kuomintang army fighting Japan.
The team visiting Arunachal Pradesh is from the US government’s Defence Prisoners of War/Missing in Action Accounting Agency (DPAA), said the BBC.
