Four Baloch missing persons, who went missing from Defence Housing Authority in Karachi, have been released after spending 4 years in incommunicado detention.
According to TBP correspondent, a mother and her three sons have been released in Lasbella Balochistan, after they were arrested and subsequently disappeared from posh area of Defence Housing Authority in Karachi. The unfortunate family was arrested in the end of 2014 allegedly by personnel of Pakistani secret services. The mother and her three sons remained missing for nearly 4 years.
It was not clear why the family was targeted, however, one of the sons was said to be involved in politics. The family had denied any involvement in any illegal activities.
The victims Bibi Suraya Khaliq Baloch and her three sons Deedag M. Hasni, Waqas M. Hasni and Aurangzeb M. Hasni belonged to an influential family but even that had failed to help the relatives recover the missing.
Deedag was a student of Jinnah University and Waqas was a police officer. Waqas is also son in law of Ahmed Baksh Lehri, who served as Chief Secretary Balochistan and Director General of Gwadar Development Authority.
The family hails from Jhao in Balochistan but had been living in Hub and Karachi for last many years.
Balochistan is plagued by the enforced disappearances of Baloch youth and activists. However, recent instances of ‘women and children abductions’ have also been reported.
International campaign groups including Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International accuse Pakistani security forces as the perpetrators of ‘illegal abductions in Balochistan’.
