Lahore: Pakistani police on Sunday found the
bodies of eight unidentified men in a deserted well near
Attock city in Punjab province, officials said.

A resident of Haji Shah Road, eight kilometres from
Attock, informed police about the bodies.

A police team went to the spot and pulled the bodies
out of the well this morning, officials said.

The dead men were aged between 20 and 30 years.

Post-mortem examinations at a government hospital in
Attock revealed that at least two men had been strangled.

District police chief Akhtar Abbas told reporters that
the men were probably killed at some other place almost four
days ago and their bodies dumped in the well.

No clue about the identity of the dead men had been
found so far.

All the dead men had beards, he said.

Abbas said it seemed that the men were not residents
of Attock district.
