15 bullet-riddled bodies found in Balochistan

15 bullet-riddled bodies found in Balochistan

QUETTA: Police on Wednesday found 15 bullet-ridden bodies of kidnap victims in Balochstan near the border with Iran, a favored route for human traffickers taking workers illegally to Europe.

The bodies were found abandoned in a mountainous region of Buleda, in Baluchistan province, 600 km (370 miles) south of the provincial capital of Quetta, district commissioner Bashir Ahmad Bangalzai told Reuters.

He said documents and other belongings found on the bodies suggested that they were en route to Iran illegally.

It was not clear what prompted the killings, said Bangalzai. He said all 15 came from province of Punjab.

“We’re getting in contact with their families,” he said.

A police official said all 15 were reported to have been kidnapped on Tuesday.

No one has claimed responsibility. (Reuters/Web Desk)
