A decapitated body, washed ashore at Nadukkudah in Mannar Thursday, was handed over to Mannar General Hospital Friday morning by Thalaimannar Police. The fishermen in Pesalai, since Wednesday, have witnessed more than four dead bodies, packed inside polypropylene fertilizer bags, floating in the sea. More than 10 persons are reported missing in Pesalai area within the last 20 days, according to the Human Rights Commission sources in Mannar.

Fishermen from Vankalai, Thalvupadu and Southbar reported to the Sri Lankan Police about the dead bodies floating in the sea. The police had said that they could only attend the issue once the bodies reach the shore and asked the fishermen to approach Sri Lankan Navy, fishermen said.

The headless body was handed over to the hospital at 11:00 a.m.
