Thugs have dug up remains of a girl with albinism from a graveyard in Kasungu, police say.
The incident occurred over the weekend at Mnyanja Village, Sub-T/A Chitanthamapiri in the district. Kasungu Police deputy public relations officer Constable Harry Namwaza said the criminals dug out a grave of Martha Banda who died on 7th January, 2004 at the age of 14.
Namwaza said villagers discovered that late Martha’s remains had been dug out when they went to prepare another grave for a 16 year-old boy who had just died in the village.
“CID officers visited the graveyard and it was discovered that the remains were taken by unknown criminals,” he said. Police have since launched a manhunt for the criminals.
