Five bullet-riddled bodies were found in Turbat's Tajaban area in Balochistan on Saturday morning, Levies sources said.

The sources added that locals had spotted the dead bodies and informed levies personnel. Senior police and security forces officials had arrived at the spot shortly after and recovered the bodies in order to begin investigations.

The bodies were shifted to District Headquarters (DHQ) Hospital Turbat.

Levies said that all the victims had received multiple bullet injuries and belonged to Punjab's Gujrat district.

The incident comes days after 15 bullet-riddled bodies were found near the same area. The victims were attempting to enter Iran on their way to Europe and belonged to various districts of Punjab.

Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF) had taken responsibility of the attack and an alleged BLF commander involved in the incident was later killed during an intelligence-based operation by Frontier Corps (FC) on Friday.
