    Time to check who was in charge of the Army in Marthale during the JVP uprising and what did he mean when he said " Udarata baiyo ekekwath ithurukaranna epa" ?????

    Do not come to conclusion now , Can be natural, 1989-1991 , 1971, white van or any ,
    There are ample ways to find age, gender and time period,
    MUST find that then make comments

    haran Tuesday, 04 December 2012 11:56 PM

    manpei Tuesday, 04 December 2012 10:48 PM

    The LTTE people whished harm to innocent people and you wish Shaan's family were dead. You are really no better, blinded by hate.

    truth Tuesday, 04 December 2012 10:08 PM

    "The powerful" are silent these days!!! What is up?

    truth Tuesday, 04 December 2012 10:00 PM

    Don't you know, in Sri Lanka, reports seem to vanish into thin air!!! Have any body seen any report, or its implementation?

    syamala Tuesday, 04 December 2012 08:58 PM

    now we can "officially" hide all these !!!!

    Wara Tuesday, 04 December 2012 11:28 AM

    yeah, terrorists !

    Wara Tuesday, 04 December 2012 11:26 AM

    yes, it is said to be early 1900s where a land slide took place.

    Maheshwaran Appu Tuesday, 04 December 2012 11:24 AM

    I've heard that Puran Appu had a fight with British in Matale area. Are these remains of dead British and sinhala soldiers ?
    It is interesting to see the final report.

    They say that these skeletons belong to 1971 JVP resurrection as there had been an Army camp at this premises at that time..

    ding Tuesday, 04 December 2012 09:44 AM

    typical idiot... take a close look at those skeletons... those definitely look way older... wonder whether they've analyzed these yet.. it would be interesting to see the reports..

    Rubert Vanderkoon Tuesday, 04 December 2012 09:31 AM

    Not quite God but a COLnel. When the attention needs diverting from CJ and COL, a COLnel in 1988 in that area who knew where bodies lay, has decided digging old graves. Not quite an accidental finding!!

    Sumanasiri Tuesday, 04 December 2012 08:46 AM

    Those who think the past will stay safely buried, beware. Mass graves can still yield evidence.

    patriot Tuesday, 04 December 2012 04:04 AM

    This explains that God exist ..true does not die, these are white van victims , they could be from north or south, some one in defence know about this...

    ananym Tuesday, 04 December 2012 08:41 AM

    May all are Shans Family memebers

    Mason Tuesday, 04 December 2012 08:25 AM

    Like so many crimes that are not being investigated lately, this too would be swept under the carpet. So far the party in power as well as the opposition are keeping mum.

    Minister Tuesday, 04 December 2012 08:01 AM

    conty Tuesday, 04 December 2012 07:25 AM

    Anton how's your maths 2+2=4 not 5!! If you are convinced they the remains of assassinated people then you should shed some light or be quiet until the authorities do something about it without putting thoughts into peoples minds. This causes problems to all including the families of missing people. In other words just be quiet don't speculate!!!!!!!!

    Srimal Tuesday, 04 December 2012 07:23 AM

    Are these all white van victims who were caught by this govt for speaking against them?

    Aaks Tuesday, 04 December 2012 07:17 AM

    We all have forgotten about the skeletal remains found in Durriappa Stadium, Jaffna, and excavations there have been stopped long ago. Similarly, we will forget this one also soon. A true Miracle of Asia!

    jacoob Tuesday, 04 December 2012 06:32 AM

    Yeah OMG ,

    No one will complain only when your skull is unearthed among them .. Do you call yourself a human ??

    jacoob Tuesday, 04 December 2012 06:29 AM

    Shan,

    LTTE .. hmm .. go a liitle bit north and then west .. you will see thousands!! this is peanuts

    pasha Tuesday, 04 December 2012 06:24 AM

    CBK came to power by using empilipitiya skeltel remains. now opposition party is silent

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 04 December 2012 06:08 AM

    White van dumping ground.

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 04 December 2012 06:07 AM

    Kill innocent tamils and put the famous label LTTE.

    shan Tuesday, 04 December 2012 05:14 AM

    May all are LTTE

    OMG Tuesday, 04 December 2012 05:08 AM

    What seems to be the problem here.

    If no one is complaining, just bury the remains some other place and get on with it.

    ANTON Tuesday, 04 December 2012 04:20 AM

    No one has revealed the mystery behind these assassinations.
