Three more go missing, two others released

Two formerly missing persons were released today, whereas, another three have been abducted by the Pakistani forces.

According to the details received by the Balochistan Post, two brothers who were picked up allegedly by the security forces nine months ago from lasbela, have been released today.

Faisal and Ali Dad, sons of Ali Bakhsh, are residents of ‘Kolowa’, but had reportedly moved to Lasbela because of continuous military operations in their ancestral village.

They were living in Lasbela when Pakistani forces picked them up. They remained missing for nine months until they were released last night in Khuzdar city.

In another news, two persons were allegedly taken away by the forces during military raids in Sibi and Panjgur.

According to TBP correspondent, Doda Domki and Durru Domki were arrested by Pakistani forces and taken to an undisclosed location, during a military raid in Lehri town of Sibi.

Whereas, Jumul s/o Dost Muhammad has was ‘whisked away’ by Pakistani forces from Gichk town of Panjgur.

The term ‘abducted’ is widely used in Balochistan to connote arrests made by security forces as the arrested are not presented before the court of law and instead kept in military camps.

According to Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP), a campaign group by families of victims, more than 20,000 Baloch men, women and children are under Pakistani custody. VBMP also alleges that at least 5,000 missing persons have been killed and dumped over last one decade.

International campaign groups including Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International also accuse Pakistani security forces as the culprits of ‘illegal abductions in Balochistan’.
