QUETTA: The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) confirmed in a statement to media that Pakistani forces abducted 81 people from different areas of Balochistan in the span of one week.
The Pakistani Inter-Services Public Relations issue the confessional statement after pro-freedom Baloch parties and human rights organisation reported that Pakistani security forces have intensified their offensives in different areas of Balochistan.
