The journalists who waited for hours at Rowriah Air Base where the bodies of AN-32 crash victims were to arrive protested on Friday against "lack of cooperation" by IAF officers to divulge information about the incident.

The local scribes who gathered in large numbers at the 10th Air Force wing station at Rowriah were disappointed as the IAF officers refused to divulge any information about the arrival of bodies of the crew of the ill-fated aircraft.

While the Air Officer Commanding Rowriah station G P Singh was not available over pohone, Group Captain M J Dikshit pleaded ignorance about the matter.

"You are advised to contact Eastern Air Command headquarters at Shillong for information" was the reply of an officer who was cornered by the journalists at Rowriah about four kms from here.

The aircraft crashed near Sino-Indian border on June 9 with 13 crew and all of who died.

Their last rites are expected to be performed today.
