Investigations have revealed that the skeletal remains found in the premises of the Mankulam Hospital in Mullaitivu are more than 20 years old.

Police said the conclusion was reached after a judicial medical examination.

A stock of metal scraps was found when the earth was being dug up to lay the foundation stone for a new building within the hospital premises on the 11th of February.

The security forces were summoned to the area and further excavations led to the skeletal remains.

The Mankulam Police produced facts over the excavations to the Mullaitivu Magistrate.

The matter will be taken up in Court on the 26th of February once again.
