Beijing: A total of 231 fossilised dinosaur eggs and skeletal remains were seized from a house in China's Guangdong province, authorities said on Thursday.
Police raided the house in Heyuan city on July 29 and seized the eggs, which date back to the Cretaceous period.
The skeleton was later identified as a Psittacosaurus, Xinhua news agency reported.
Heyuan was known as the "hometown of the dinosaur" in China, with many fossilised eggs discovered over the decades. The city's museum has set a Guinness record for having collected more than 10,000 dinosaur eggs.
Chinese laws place fossilised creatures under state ownership and ban any trade or possession of them except by specialised institutions and professionals.
The case has been registered following the complaint lodged by film director Suneel Darshan who has alleged that Google allowed unauthorized persons to upload his film 'Ek Haseena Thi Ek Deewana Tha' on YouTube
