Pakistan seeking Red Notice to cover up military operation in Balochistan: Brahumdagh Bugti

ANI | Geneva [Switzerland] Mar 03, 2017 07:05 AM IST

Baloch Republican Party (BRP) chief Brahumdagh Bugti has said Pakistan's act of seeking Red Notice against him is aimed at veiling the ongoing atrocities in Balochistan under the garb of military operations against terrorism.

"The objective of issuing this red warrant is a failed attempt to cover the ongoing military operation in Balochistan. The military operation in Balochistan has been going on for 10-12 years but from the past six weeks in Dera Bugti and its adjoining area a special operation is targeting women and children who are being taken away and then going missing without their whereabouts being known," said Bugti.

Pakistan on Tuesday approached the Interpol seeking Red Notices in the names of Baloch nationalist leader Brahumdagh Bugti and his aide Sher Mohammad Bugti, who are in Geneva, and their arrest.

In the letter to Interpol, Director General of Pakistan's Federal Investigation Agency said that both Brahamdagh Bugti and Sher Mohammad Bugti were "involved in various terrorist attacks in Balochistan province of Pakistan".

Brahumdagh allged that at least 200 women and children have gone missing following the operation.

"Houses are being destroyed. Cattle are being killed through bombarding via helicopters. According to our information, some people were captured and later released after FC (Frontier Corps) and ISI took money from them. Some people are being forced to confess that they were militants acting under instructions from Brahumdagh and that now they have surrendered and have thus been pardoned by Pakistan," he added.

Brahumdagh further claimed that another motive of this red notice is to counter their efforts of highlighting this face of Pakistan and terror activities in Balochistan at the recently commenced UN session.

"80 percent of the Pakistani media is also involved (in supporting) Baloch genocide. They are only concerned about praising the military and its policies for their personal gains," he added.

Brahumdagh fled Balochistan after his grandfather and Bugti tribe head, Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti, was killed in a Pakistan Army offensive in 2006. He was first given asylum in Afghanistan from where he shifted to Switzerland in 2010 following threat to his life
