Annigeri skulls could have been of those perished in epidemic disease

Hundreds of human skulls found at Annigeri near here recently could have been that of those who perished in an epidemic disease that had struck the village, a team which investigated the matter said today.

The team of Dharwad University officials led by S N Sadaksharappa in its report submitted to the District Deputy Commissioner also suspected that there was a possibility that these skulls could have been brought from a burial ground from those who practiced black magic to perform pooja and later dumped in a place.The discovery of several skulls about three months ago near a canal in the village had triggered panic.The report rules out that it was skulls of soldiers who died in a war, officials said.
