15 bullet-riddled bodies found in Balochistan's Turbat

November 15: At least 15 bullet-riddled bodies were discovered in Balochistan's Kech district on Wednesday morning, the Dawn has reported.

The identification of the bodies, recovered in Gorak area of Tehsil Buleda in the Kech district, is yet to be done by the concerned authorities.

Turbat Jamil Ahmed told journalists that the victims had been kidnapped on gunpoint by unknown men when they were on their way to Iran from Punjab for their livelihood.

It is yet to be ascertained whether the victims were labourers or illegal immigrants trying to enter Iran on their way to Europe, the official said.

The assistant commissioner said the victims belonged to Punjab's Gujrat and Mandi Bahauddin districts.

Levies personnel immediately arrived at the scene and shifted them to the District Headquarter (DHQ) Hospital for autopsy. These are considered to be a hotbed for separatists belonging to banned outfits who target security forces and poor labourers from other provinces. Militants in the area have repeatedly attacked labourers, security forces and pro-government politicians in the area.

In September, three bullet-riddled bodies were found in the district while another two were discovered in October.
