Missing french lady’s case : TUTH forensic test

Kathmandu, October 30:

The Nepal Police is all set to resume investigation to find out the whereabouts of missing French lady Celine Henry, 34, who was earlier mistakenly identified with the decomposed body of a woman found at Nagarjun forest on February 11.

The police had identified the female body as Celine Henry, who went missing on September 3, 2005 on the basis of a forensic test report of the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital, Maharajgunj, and the goods recovered from the spot. But, a DNA test of the body in France revealed that the body was not of Henry but of German lady Sabine Grueneklee, 31, who has gone missing since September 15, 2005.

“We are going to launch a search operation from tomorrow in cooperation with the Nepali Army,” said Pradhumna Karki, Deputy Superintendent of Police at the Valley Crime Investigation Branch (VCIB), Hanumandhoka.

The police said both the women had registered their names at the entrance to the Nagarjun forest but there was no evidence of their coming out of the jungle. Karki said that a French team along with relatives of Celine is already in Kathmandu. “It is also possible that a French police team will come to Kathmandu very soon to search the missing lady,” he added.
