A Miranshah resident, Sangin Dawar, said the bodies were found dumped on the side of a road in Data Khil area, the scene of frequent US drone attacks.
He said a letter was found attached to one of the dead bodies.
The letter said these men were killed on the charge of spying and cooperation with the government and America. It had warned if anyone was found spying for the government would meet the same fate.
