Eight days of excavations have yielded the skeletal remains of 14 persons at a suspected mass grave at Kokkutuduvai in Mullaitivu.

Lawyer V.S. Niranjan, who observes the excavations, told the media yesterday (14) that five skeletons believed to be those of LTTE members were located during the day’s excavations.

One of them was of a female and the rest belonged to males, he said, adding that a bullet was found embedded in one skeleton.

The skeletal remains found so far are being kept at the district hospital there.

Excavations there began after water supply workers laying underground pipelines stumbled upon the human remains 200 metres away from Kokkutuduvai central college on 29 June.

Work resumed on 06 September following a court order.
