Several bone fragments - believed to be human – have been found during an excavation at the Matale Hospital premises today.

Hospital authorities had informed the police of the discovery, made during digging carried out by a private firm using a backhoe.

Officers of the Matale Police Station have been dispatched to the locations while they have sealed off the area and provided security.

A decision would be made regarding conducting further excavation after the Matale Magistrate arrives for an inspection, Ada Derana reporter said.

The digging was conducted near ward No.18 of the hospital, where police believe a cemetery had existed previously.
