The skeletal remains of six persons have been unearthed in as many days of excavations at a suspected mass grave at Kokku Thuduvai in Mullaitivu.

JMO Kanagasabapathy Vasudeva told the media on 12 September that during the day’s excavations, they found another skeleton and a water purifier of Russian make.

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.
