MACHILIPATNAM: Four badly decomposed human skulls and other body parts were found in a garbage dump near Kendriya Vidyalaya here on Sunday by some people who went near the place to relieve themselves.
In no time, the news spread like a wildfire in the town and hundreds of panic-stricken people in the area were panicked and were in grip of fear. Were the four persons murdered and the severed parts dumped there? Did the dogs drag the bodies cremated in the nearby burial ground ? These questions are playing on the minds of people.
DSP D S Sravan Kumar and other police officials rushed to the spot and took stock of the situation. After speaking to locals, they found that the skulls and limbs found in the garbage were those of the abandoned corpses in the mortuary at government hospital.
Though sanitation workers of municipality were supposed to shift such bodies to the garbage yard and bury them, they did not do so, but either they negligently threw the bodies into garbage dump or did a poor job of cremating them. It was found that it was not the first such incident, but in the past, they were incidents of dogs dragging body parts from nearby burial ground.
Speaking to mediapersons on the occasion, DSP said it was clear case of negligence by municipal workers, who did a poor job in taking care of abandoned bodies.
