Security forces have handed over the dead body of a 16-year-old boy, who was arrested and taken away to undisclosed location only few days ago.
According to local TBP correspondent, the 16-year-old boy along with another person was arrested only few days ago during a house to house search. 16-year-old Majeed s/o Ali Jan and Sana s/o Nabi Baksh were then taken to an undisclosed location.
Both were under incommunicado detention until today, when personnel of security forces handed over the dead boy of Majeed to his family. Sana is still missing without any trace.
Majeed’s family has said that the dead body contains several marks of torture, suggesting he was torture-murdered. However, the security forces did not comment how the young boy died.
In Balochistan, campaign groups allege that thousands of activists and others are held in Pakistani detention centers, without having any contact with their loved ones. Scores of these missing persons have appeared dead on roadsides, after being ‘murdered in torture cells’.
