As many as 56 unidentified dead bodies were recovered from different areas of Lahore during last month, and the police failed to perform postmortem on any of them and even have not been able to complete the identification of the bodies, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The corpses are still lying in government mortuaries. There are 56 abandoned bodies including two of them of women.

Jinnah Hospital has five unrecognized bodies while three are present in General Hospital.

The autopsy of unclaimed bodies for the past month has not been completed.

Due to the lack of identification and burial of unknown bodies, the administrations of the morgues are facing mounting pressure for their appropriate ‘disposal’.

For a long period of time, the burial of nameless bodies has been stopped in ‘Shehr-e-Khamoshan’ cemetery.

According to the preliminary investigation, most of the deceased died of drug abuse, however, after the identity of the dead bodies, the necropsy report will reveal the real cause of the death.
