The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has claimed to have arrested two men allegedly involved in the trafficking of 20 youths, bullet-riddled bodies of whom were found from Balochistan's Turbat district last week.

Subsequently, security forces claimed to have killed a top militant commander near the incident site. The banned Baloch Liberation Front, headed by Allah Nazar Baloch, had claimed responsibility for the killings.

Three days after 15 bodies were found, five more bodies were discovered from the same district. All those killed belonged to Punjab and apparently wanted to cross into Iran en route to Europe.

According to Express News, the smuggler, identified as Sohail Shakeel, had lured the men into sending them to Germany illegally with the help of his brother residing in the country.
