They said that Anthony Vincent Mariyanayagam was digging a well in his compound when the skull was found at the depth of about ten feet around 11 a.m.

The digging was stopped as a consequence. Neighbours said that Mariyanayagam has not reported the matter to the authorities out of fear but has left the skull at the local cemetery.

A resident of Munai who inspected the skull said that its teeth were largely intact.

Meanwhile The Sri Lankan Police produced a senior area leader of the PLOTE wanted in connection with the decapitation of a Nelliyadi youth in March before the Pt.Pedro magistrate yesterday.
