KARACHI: Police recovered bodies of two Baloch men from the Surjani Town area in Karachi on Wednesday, DawnNews reported.

The area police said 35-year-old Haji Razzak and 40-year-old Pathan were strangled and their bodies were found near Hamad Nawaz Farm on Hub Road within the remit of the Northern Bypass neighbouring Surjani Town police station.

The victims were identified with the help of slips found from their bodies, which had their names written on it.

Sources said the deceased persons hailed from the Balochistan province and their names were included in the missing persons’ list.

Moreover, Haji Razak, son of Rasool Baksh, was the sub-editor of a Mastung-based publication from the province of Balochistan. He was the resident of Karachi’s Lyari area and was said to be missing since March 24, 2013.

Earlier, two missing Baloch youngsters allegedly picked up by personnel of some security agency in Turbat were found dead in Surjani Town.

It is pertinent to mention that in the past six months, a total of 16 bodies have been recovered from the Surjani Town area, all hailing from Balochistan.

After cities of Balochistan, it is believed that Karachi is fast becoming a dumping ground for bodies of missing Baloch men.
