After Unnao, skeletons found in 3 other districts in Uttar Pradesh

‘Sacks carrying a large number of human bones and other remains were found’

Unnao, Uttar Pradesh: Even as Uttar Pradesh police was grappling with the unearthing of over 100 human skeletons in Unnao, reports of similar shocking recoveries came from Bahraich, Gorakhpur and Moradabad districts of the state on Sunday.

In Bahraich, scores of sacks containing human remains and viscera have been found in a room in police lines area, prompting authorities to launch a probe.

"Sacks carrying a large number of human bones and other remains were found from a room in the police lines," District Magistrate of Bahraich Abhay Kumar Singh said.

Singh said he has asked the city magistrate to set up a team to probe the matter and submit a report within a week.

"5,793 post mortem examinations were carried out in the room from 1950 till date, and the remains were not disposed of," the DM said.

Similarly, a heap of human bones and containers carrying viscera were recovered near old post mortem house in Gorakhpur, an official said.

"Viscera and bones were being stored in the old post mortem room near police lines since 1969 where an intelligence office has been constructed," Chief Medical Officer Gorakhpur P K Mishra said.

Additional Superintendent of Police Satyendra Kumar said the CMO should have made proper arrangement for storage of viscera and bone samples till the legalities were completed.

Meanwhile, SSP Pradeep Yadav has constituted a committee, which will probe into the matter.

In similar recovery, sacks containing bones and viscera were found in Moradabad after which an inquiry has been ordered.
