Human skulls found in Jaffna hospital premises

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 11 September 2001, 05:15 GMT]
Construction workers digging a ditch in the rear of the Jaffna General hospital compound Monday came upon human skeletal remains, including two skulls. Hospital sources said that work was stopped immediately and the matter has been brought to the notice of the Police. The rear section of the hospital premises where the human skeletal remains were discovered was occupied by the Sri Lanka army from 1995, Jaffna hospital sources said Tuesday . The army vacated the rear section of the hospital two months ago, according to them.

The vacated area was part of the SLA’s 51-2 Brigade headquarters in Jaffna town.

Construction work on a new building began after the SLA handed back the rear section to the Jaffna hospital authorities.
