Thai police have discovered a new mass grave a kilometre away from the first one.
Thai police are yet to comment on details of the bodies found in the new grave. At least 28 bodies were pulled out from the site. Rohingya refugees in Thailand have told Burma Times that there are many more similar graveyards throughout the jungles of southern Thailand.
A number of local representatives and officials have been arrested in the regard.
The recent discoveries comes in light of confessions extracted from a notorious human trafficker Anwar.
The discovery of mass graves points out to an involvement by police, government officials and local politicians in the criminal ring. A number of Rohingyas based in Bangladesh and Burma are also involved in the international crime ring.
