MADURAI: Even after police exhumed four skeletal remains at E Malampatti to probe the alleged human sacrifice by PRP Granites, the Madras High Court-appointed Legal Commissioner U Sagayam on Thursday requested the district administration and police to dig even deeper in the graveyard for a thorough investigation.
Sagayam in his communication asked the administration to dig five feet more at the spot where police exhumed the skeletal remains of four persons last Sunday.
Sagayam is believed to have stated in the communication that PRP Granite might have buried the two differently-abled persons from Pudukottai much deeper using a JCB earthmover, a diesel-driven excavator. He also had reasons to believe that the place was not a graveyard years ago. It had turned into a graveyard much later. Sagayam raised these issues in the letter, according to a police source.
Earlier the police excavated the spot after Sagayam forwarded the complaint filed by M Sevarkodiyon, a former employee of the granite firm, alleging that PRP Granite had killed differently abled persons as part of the human sacrifice and their bodies were buried at that spot. Even after police booked Palanisamy and three of his staff in the case, Sagayam insisted on digging deeper to excavate and check for human remains at the spot. When officials cited the legal procedure to be followed, he stayed at night at E Malampatti fearing destruction of evidence.
Meanwhile on Thursday, PRP Granite shareholder P R Palanisamy appeared before the special investigation team in connection with the alleged human sacrifice by his firm at Keelavalavu.
