The police have found unidentified skeletal remains of a woman at the Karuwalagaswewa burial grounds on an information received to the Emergency Division yesterday (24). The police states a coffin also was found nearby.
The police suspects that the remains are of a person who has passed away 5 months back. They also suspect that the remains and the coffin were dumped there from an outside area since nobody have been buried in this burial ground in the recent past.
The Puttalam Magistrate who arrived at the scene ordered to conduct a post mortem on the remains and submit a report to the courts.
Accordingly the post-mortem on the remains will be conducted today at the Puttalam hospital.
