Skeletal remains of 53 individuals were unearthed by yesterday from excavations in Mannar.

 

The excavations were carried at the mass grave in Mannar Sathosa Building Site, Judicial Medical Officer S. Rajapaksa said yesterday. The excavations of the site were being done under the supervision of Mannar Magistrate T.G. Prabhakaran.  


He said 34 out of 53 skeletal remains that had been unearthed were sealed and placed at the Mannar Magistrate’s Court.  


The excavations of the site began after some skeletal remains were found while digging a foundation for the Sathosa building by workers in March.
