Col. Ferozaldo Paul T. Regencia, Acting Commanding Officer of the 49th Infantry Battalion said a civilian gave them information about the location where rebels identified as Ka James and Ka Omar are buried.

Ka James and Ka Omar, the investigation revealed, died on October 31, when the rebels allegedly attacked the Philippine Army at Sityo Namukanan, Barangay Daguit.

Meanwhile, Executive Officer Maj. Marcial M. Lumanga said they are coordinating with the Philippine National Police Scene of the Crime Operatives for the identification of the bodies.

Autopsies have already been conducted by the Camarines Sur Provincial Crime Laboratory Office last Sunday at the Bagongbayan Public Cemetery, according to Senior Inspector Michelle Sarmiento Estolatan.

The Army said they are willing to give a decent burial to the rebels, who appear to have been abandoned as their comrades were fleeing from the government troops.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM With report from 9ID
