The human corpse which washed up the shore of H. Dh. Naavaidhoo last Tuesday has now been buried.
The corpse washed up the shore to the south of the area used by locals to harbor boats at approximately 11:30 on Tuesday morning.
Maldives Police Service says it has extracted the necessary samples from the corpse, and buried it on an uninhabited island later on Tuesday.
President of Naavaidhoo Council, Ahmed Faiz, reported to ‘Sun’ earlier that the decaying corpse is believed to be that of a female foreigner.
