Blaming Taliban militants for kidnapping and murdering the people, the governor said the militants had kidnapped the victims a couple of days ago and shot them dead.

However, sources said, the bodies were of some soldiers who were kidnapped a few days ago along the Kabul-Kandahar highway.

Taliban were yet to make an comment on the incident.
