The bodies of HS Ahluwalia--co-pilot of the Air India Express aircraft, which crashed at Mangalore airport on Saturday, and air hostess Tejal Kamulkar were brought to Mumbai Sunday afternoon.

While Ahluwalia is a resident of suburban Andheri, Kamulkar's family lives in Dombivali, in the neighbouring Thane district.

Sujata Survase, another air hostess, who died in the crash, was also from Andheri. Her body has not yet been brought to Mumbai yet.

Grief-stricken family members of Ahluwalia and Kamulkar were present at the airport at around 5.30 pm to receive the bodies.

Tejal, 24, had started her career in the aviation industry as an air hostess only four months ago.

Ahluwalia, 41, on the other hand, had been serving as a co-pilot for fifteen years.
