The skeletons and human remains of over 80 people unearthed in a mass grave in Mannar have been transferred to Anuradhapura on Tuesday, Uthayan reported.
The remains had till now been stored at Mannar hospital.
The transfer was made at 10am, under the supervision of the Mannar judge, Aananthi Kanagaratnam. It is not known why the remains were moved.
The Bishop of Mannar, who had called for an international investigation into the mass grave due to the lack of credibility associated with any internal process, had earlier said that the holes in many of the skulls were believed to be from gunshot wounds.
Calls for an international investigation into the grave, were also made by the TNA earlier this year.
