Enforced Disappearance, extra judicial killings have been going on in Balochistan since early 2000’s. When the central government started to suppress the voice of indigenous people of Balochistan on rights for their land and resources. Thousands have gone missing since then, hundreds of missing persons were found dead later.
The policy of enforced disappearance of women and children and custodial killing of civilians have given rise to a humanitarian crisis which has largely affected the people in Balochistan since two decades.
