Pakistani security forces have arrested and disappeared at least 25 people from different areas of Balochistan including Quetta, Sibbi and Pasni in past 24 hours.
According to details the Frontier Corps (FC) personnel barged into a Public Welfare Centre in Pasni area of Balochistan and abducted three people.
The victims were named as Khoda Ganj son of Eido, Nazeer son of Murad, Ghaus Bux son of Sakhi Dad all resident of Pasni while a fourth person was abducted from Pasni Zero point who has been named as Sabir son of Barkat a resident of Rekposht.
It is pertinent to note that Khoda Ganj is the elder brother of Shaheed Siddique Eido Baloch and he’s also a staff of Pasni Municipal Committee, Ghaus Bux is staff at fisheries department in Balochistan and brother of a well-known Baloch musician and singer Mr Rasool Bux Fareed whereas Nazeer Murad is a fish trader.
Recently the Pakistani security forces have accelerated their atrocities and abductions of Baloch people in the name of establishing peace in Balochistan but independent observers believe that such indiscriminate acts of Pakistan army are fuelling more hatred against the state forces in Balochistan.
Meanwhile the spokesperson of Frontier Corps (FC) claimed that FC have arrested 21 suspected ‘militants’ from Sibi and Quetta.
Independent sources, however, reported that the number of abducted people from Sibi is around 30 people.
Local sources told Balochwarna news that on Friday morning Pakistan FC and military conducted raides in different localities in Sibi (Sewi) Balochistan. They also complained that Pakistani forces harassed women and children during their search operation and looted valuables and cash from the houses.
Separately, at least 8 people have reportedly been arrested from Hazar Ganji, Satellite Town, Saryab and Killi Jeo areas of Quetta.
All the abducted people have been shifted to undisclosed locations and their whereabouts remained unknown until the filing of this report.
Baloch pro-liberation parties and activists have long accused Pakistani forces of indiscriminate actions and innocent Baloch activists. They allege that since the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) deal, the military has accelerated its ‘atrocities’ against Baloch people in an effort to please the Chinese government and to assure them that conditions are suitable for them to invest in ‘development’ projects in Balochistan.
The Baloch armed groups, on the other hand, warned china not to invest in ‘controversial’ projects in Balochistan until the conflict is resolved and the Baloch people regain their sovereignty.
