Stealing of human skeletons, skulls from the graves in different areas
especially in the southwest districts of Bangladesh have created
sensation among the people, said sources in Bangladesh Defence Rifles

The undamaged human skulls and skeletons are being removed from the
graveyards and smuggled out of country in exchange of huge amount of
money. Local sources said last one year 500 skeletons have been stolen
from southwest districts of Chuadanga, Kushita, Jhenidah, Jessore,
Khulana and Norail while BDR personnel recovered 250 human skeletons and
skulls from different border point. The BDR jawans on duty have also
recovered 13 human skeletons while being smuggling into India last week.
