At least 10 skeletal remains found

At least 10 skeletal remains were found from the site near the Matale hospital over the past two days, the police media unit said today.

Construction workers had, earlier this week, initially found some human bone fragments when land near the hospital was being dug-up to construct a new building.

Following police investigations excavation work began to look for skeletal remains at the site and the police said today that over the last two days 10 skeletal remains and a few bone fragments were found.

The police media unit said that further excavation will continue at the site while the Matale police conduct investigations.
