The funeral prayers of 10 coalminers, executed in Balochistan’s Machh mines area were offered on Saturday morning at Hazara Town Imam-bargah.
They buried at Hazara Town Graveyard. It is unclear whether all victims were buried. The Afghan government had claimed seven of them as Afghan nationals and said it wanted the bodies returned.
Allama Raja Nasir Abbas led the funeral prayers. The victims were buried after six days. Their bodies were kept on the Western Bypass during a protest by their families and other Hazaras. They demanded and wanted to bury victims with Prime Minister Imran Khan but he refused to visit them until the burials were done.
Imran Khan arrives in Quetta right after the burial. The premier accused the grieving families of “blackmail” and said he would not come until bodies were interred. He was scheduled to visit Quetta at 10am, same time the funeral was scheduled but suddenly shifted his visit to noon.
He is now in Quetta and has arrived at Chief Minister House. PM will meet the victims families at Sardar Bahadar Khan University. Security is tighten at the varsity.
