QUETTA: Three more dead bodies were recovered from a mass grave in Balochistan's Khuzdar district on Sunday, a levies official said.

A levies official, who requested anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the media, told Dawn.com that three more dead bodies were recovered from a mass grave in Totak area of Khuzdar.

"The dead bodies have been shifted to civil hospital for identification," he said.

The mass grave was discovered on January 25th this year. According to levies, hitherto 16 dead bodies have been recovered from the grave.

Two dead bodies were identified by their relatives, whereas the remaining corpses are yet to be identified.

The recovery of the mass-grave in Balochistan was vehemently criticised by rights groups.

And their severe criticism prompted the Balochistan government to launch a judicial inquiry into the incident.

Similarly, the Supreme Court had also taken suo moto notice of the mass grave.

Baloch nationalists groups and voice for Baloch missing persons claim that most of the dead bodies were of missing Baloch political workers in the province.
