The skeletal remains were found close approximation to the mass grave site in Thiruketheeswaram where remains of 96 persons were found five-years- ago, it was reported.

The investigation was triggered after several voluntary organizations filed a petition at the court pointing out that more skeletons could be found from the new site.
