Both these tribes were at one time associated more closely with Las Bela than with Sind, the Numrias having for a short period in the seventeenth century supplied the ruling dynasty of the country.The Baloch derivation of these tribes is demonstrated by the style of the carved stone tombs which are such a feature of the country in which they have been predominant, from Jherrak as far north as Hinidan on the right bank of Hab river.show more
