'Black magician' arrested after recovery of 21 skulls in Konark

The local police in Konark  have detained a “tantrik” (black magician) in connection with the recovery of 21  human skulls on a dry river bed on the Puri-Konark marine drive road.

A detailed investigation into the incident is on. Panic gripped the area last Sunday after villagers discovered human skulls under a bridge over the river Kushabhadra.

 Human bones and a few animal skeletons had also been found laying near the skulls.
After recovering them, the police sent them to the forensic medicine and toxicology department. The report is awaited.
