Two transgender women were found murdered with torture marks on their bodies in Pakistan's Punjab province.
The bodies were recovered on Saturday night from a locked house in Sahiwal district, after the neighbours complained of a stench coming from the house, the Samaa TV reported.
According to police, the killing was done about three days back.
Both the victims were killed with a sharp-edged weapon in their rented house and they had multiple wounds on their bodies, police said.
Transgender people are often subjected to abuse in Pakistan.
