HRCP for identifying decomposed bodies
LAHORE: The HRCP has voiced concern over the discovery of 20 decomposed bodies in Bara area of Khyber Agency.
The commission also demanded urgent efforts to ascertain the identity of the victims and end the pervasive insecurity across the country.
In a press statement on Friday, HRCP said: “The decomposed bodies of 20 persons found in Bara, Khyber Agency, just goes to show how insecure human life has become in the country, especially in FATA.”
“If the deceased are common citizens, this is a heinous crime. Even if they are militants and have been killed and their bodies dumped by the security forces this is not at a civilised way to deal with them. And who knows the dead could be members of security forces.”
“The first thing is to carry out a search to establish the identity of the victims. And that would be quite difficult given the large number of people becoming victims of disappearance and otherwise going missing across the country. This also shows the urgency of disposing of all cases of forced disappearances without delay.”
