These skulls are enemy soldiers that are killed. Enemy soldiers were not buried during the war. Some bodies - some skulls were found. Some soldiers got lost. Some of them died. They did not bury. We buried our dead. It was compulsory that we bury our dead. No soldier left - if an NPFL soldier died he had to bury him. So these were enemy skulls that after you have fought in an area and people came by and they went in the bushes, if you found a skull you brought the skull and you put it at the gate as a symbol of death.
