SK, KU, PK and PBSVP carried out initial screening and complete
mtDNA sequencing of the data. SK and RRR did sequence alignment and all
the phylogenetic analysis. PAM, BD, MK, DX and SYS contributed samples.
SK drafted the manuscript. VRR conceived the study, participated in its
design and coordination also helped to improve the manuscript. All
authors read and approved the final manuscript.
