70 skulls found at hotel near India-Nepal border

70 skulls found at hotel near India-Nepal border

At least 70 human skulls were found inside two bags at a roadside hotel in a remote area near the India-Nepal border on Thursday, police said.
Local police official Kundan Lal Tamta said the hotel owner claimed a man from Nepal left the bags with her earlier in the week and said he would return for them. The man did not return and, acting on a tip, police found the bags and discovered the skulls Thursday, Tamta said.
"These skulls and skeletons appeared to be old and are being sent for forensic examination," said Tamta.
He declined to speculate further on where the skulls came from.
Police have arrested the hotel owner because the skulls were found on her property, along with another unidentified man.
Rural villages in the remote border area have been known to sometimes use bones and skulls in obscure Buddhist ceremonies.
