More bones, saree found in hospital grave

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 12 September 2001, 19:41 GMT]
Construction workers digging in the premises of the Jaffna hospital came upon more human bones and a red colour saree on Tuesday, sources in the northern town said. The skeletal remains were found a few feet below the surface in the rear section of the Jaffna hospital that was occupied the Sri Lanka army until two months ago. Neither Police nor judicial officials in Jaffna town have visited the site so far despite being informed of the discovery of the human skulls, bones and saree, hospital sources said.

Hospital authorities informed the SLA and the Police about the discovery of the bones Monday. Sources said that army officers had visited the hospital and held discussions with senior hospital officials yesterday.

Meanwhile, the workers were instructed Wednesday to fill the ditch in which human skeletal remains were discovered on 10 September with garbage,sources said.

Hospital officials are refusing to give details about the discovery of the human skeletal remains to local journalists who went there to investigate the matter, press sources in Jaffna said.
