In a suspected case of human sacrifice, bones of four bodies were exhumed from a graveyard in Madurai. The exhumation took place after the driver of a man named in a granite scam revealed human sacrifice of two mentally challenged persons in 1999.

The driver told the police that he had helped transport the two victims from Pudukkottai. He claimed that their throats were slit before being buried, ostensibly as sacrifice to ensure big business deals.
