The bodies of 10 people have been recovered from a car in the North American country of Mexico. The bodies were found in a car parked in front of the governor’s office in the central state of Zacatecas. Meanwhile, police have arrested two persons in the incident.

Reuters and BBC reported this in a report on Friday. 

According to Reuters and BBC, it was at first unknown who left a car in front of the governor’s office in the middle of a public square in the Mexican state of Zacatecas. Officials became suspicious of the car, a Mazda SUV, and found the bodies early on Thursday morning local time.

David Monreal, governor of the central state, later confirmed on social media that two suspects had been detained. “They came to leave them here in front of the palace,” he said of the crime, adding the victims were “apparently beaten”.

Meanwhile, an investigation has been started into the incident. The country’s security ministry has confirmed they are sending assistance to help the local investigation.

Violent crime and murder are on the rise in Mexico. Such incidents are also on the rise in the province of Zacatecas. Besides, the North American country is often the scene of frequent clashes between rival drug trafficking groups.

In many cases, rival armed groups fight with each other to maintain power and interests.

Zacatecas state has seen a surge in violence linked to a turf war between rival drug gangs operating in the area, including incidents where bodies have been left or displayed in public places.
