A court order has been issued for the commencement of excavations on July 06 at a site believed to be a mass grave in Mullaitivu.

Magistrate T. Saravanaraja visited the location at Kokkutuduvai on June 30 and recorded having observed skeletal remains.

Police found a shirt, pair of trousers and a jacket from what was unearthed a day earlier.

A court order has also gone to the JMO, forensics experts and bomb disposal units to be present at the commencement of the excavations.

Water supply workers stumbled upon the site while digging the earth to lay pipelines.

That happened less than a week after the ITJP, JDS, CHRD and FoD released a report of recommendations in Colombo on June 22 seeking a resumption of excavations at mass grave sites.
