QUETTA: Three bullet-riddled bodies and some body parts were found in Totak area, in Zehri tehsil of Khuzdar district, on Saturday.

Official sources said that local people informed Levies Force that some body parts had been spotted in the area. Personnel of the Levies and the Frontier Corps reached the place and found three half-buried mutilated bodies and some body parts.

Balochistan Home Secretary Asadur Rehman Gilani said that security personnel were digging earth in the area to see if more bodies had been buried there. “Recovery of body parts suggests that more bodies may be found in the area,” he said.

Levies took the bodies and body parts to Khuzdar hospital for autopsy and identification.

“The bodies have been mutilated beyond identification,” hospital sources said, adding that bullet wounds were visible on different parts of the bodies. Autopsy will be conducted on Sunday.
