POKOK SENA: The second batch of 30 remains of human trafficking victims, believed to be Rohingya migrants from Myanmar, found at
Bukit Wang Burma, Wang Kelian last month, were buried at a cemetery in Kampung Tualang today.

Kedah Islamic Religious Department (JAIK) director Datuk Noh Dahya said 28 of the victims were men and they were buried en masse in a grave, while the bodies of two women were laid to rest in an adjacent grave.

The burial started at 3.50 am and ended at 5.30 am, he added.

He said there were still 55 remains of human trafficking victims undergoing post mortem process at the Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital, with 40 of them expected to be buried next week.

Last week, JAIK had buried 21 bodies of human trafficking victims which were found in Wang Kelian.

The burial was carried out by JAIK and the National Security Council with the assistance of local villagers, the police and members of the Kedah Rohingya Welfare Association.- BERNAMA
