CABANATUAN CITY, Nueva Ecija — Three victims of extrajudicial killings were found dumped in two separate areas in Nueva Ecija Tuesday.

Provincial police director, Senior Superintendent Antonio Yarra, quoting reports to his office, said Wednesday the bodies of Ronald Agluba, 39, of Barangay Pantuc Bula, Talavera town and Ramonchito de Jesus, 19, of Cabanatuan City were found in Barangay Luna, Llanera, with multiple gunshot wounds and hands tied with plastic tape.

Signs placed on the corpses accused them of being members of the Akyat Bahay gang and involvement in the drug trade.

The third body, which remains unidentified, was stuffed inside a black garbage bag found by residents of Barangay Putlan, Carangalan.

Police believe the body, which was in an advanced state of decomposition, was dumped in Putlan days before its discovery.
