Kolkata: The skeletons dug up near former

brought to the city for forensic tests.

The skeletons, recovered yesterday, have been sent to the
Midnapore Medical College and Hospital for the post mortem,
West Midnapore`s Superintendent of Police Praveen Tripathi

test. If required, it will definitely be sent for a DNA
test."
