Three bodies were found on Wednesday in mountains located a short distance from Quetta, the capital of Balochistan. Police officials said the hands and feet of the dead men were tied with rope.
Hospital officials told the media that the men were killed at least three days ago. The men, who appeared to be Afghans, were all shot in the head.
Four Bugti tribesmen were found murdered in Pir Koh area of Dera Bugti district. Local residents informed security forces about the bodies.
In a separate incident, unidentified persons shot dead a man at Saryab Road in Quetta.
In Khuzdar district, armed men on a motorcycle shot dead a man near the Agriculture Development Bank.
Over the past two years, hundreds of bodies of “missing persons” – or people detained without charge by security persons have been found across Balochistan.
Most of the dead have been members of Baloch nationalist groups. Rights groups have blamed security agencies for the killings.
