By Our Special Correspondent

TRIPURA, JAN. 5. The Tripura Government has requested the CBI to take over investigation in the case of discovery of a human skeleton in a septic tank at the old staff quarters located in the official residence complex of the Chief Minister, Manik Sarkar, yesterday.

The Deputy General of Police, G.M. Srivastav told The Hindu that a human skull and eight bones, including three ribs, were recovered from the septic tank.

The skeletal remains, which were found during cleaning of the tank, had been sent for forensic examination. It was thought that the skeleton belonged to a 15-year-old.

The Tripura State Committee of the ruling CPI (M) has welcomed the State Government's decision to hand over the investigation to the CBI.
