Coimbatore: A charred human skull was found near a cattle feed shop on Singanallur-Vellalore road on Thursday. While police have initiated an inquiry, they suspect that stray dogs would have picked up the skull from the nearby graveyard and left that on the roadside.
After analyzing the skull, a police officer said the deceased might have been aged about 45 years. “Motorists found the charred skull near the cattle feed shop and alerted the Singanallur police, who retrieved that from the road and sent that to the forensic experts with the Coimbatore Medical College and Hospital for further investigation.”
The officer said they had combed the area for remaining parts of the body and more evidence, but in vain. “We suspect that stray dogs might have dragged it to the roadside from the nearby graveyard.” tnn
