ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- Two brothers have been accused for a second time of stealing corpses from graveyards and eating human remains, police in Pakistan said Monday.

Mohammad Arif, 36, and Farman Ali, 33, were jailed in 2011 after admitting digging up graves, stealing as many as 150 bodies and eating the exhumed flesh, according to The Express Tribune.

Police told NBC News on Monday that a boy's head was discovered during a raid on their home

"We got news this morning that they are up to their old ways," Chief Constable Zafar Iqbal of the Bhakkar Police said.

Arif was arrested and charged with crimes including "terrorism," according to Iqbal. Ali remained at large.

"He's probably just loitering around, we will find him," Iqbal added. "Nobody likes an outcast on the loose."

He added: "I'm not a doctor, but these guys are trouble. They've served time before. Maybe they have psychological problems, or maybe they're just bums. No wives, a family that doesn't talk to them, and a community that shuns them."
