Missing Naseer Baloch’s family has also joined the protest camp of missing persons.
According to details received by The Balochistan Post, family of Naseer Baloch has joined the protest camp of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) in Quetta capital city of Balochistan.

Seema Baloch, sister of missing Shabir, and Zarina Baloch, Shabir’s wife, joined the camp 9 days ago and they plan to stay there until their loved ones are not released.
