Balochistan: Son of slain Baloch leader abducted from Karachi

QUETTA: Baloch social media activists reported that teenage son of a slain Baloch leader was abducted from Karachi on Friday night.
According to details, Pakistani security forces and personnel of intelligence agencies abducted 16-year-old Balach Baloch son the founder of Baloch National Movement (BNM), martyr Ghulam Mohammad Baloch, from his house in Malir area of Karachi.
In April 2009 Pakistani forces abducted Balach’s father along with two other friends from his lawyers’ office in broad daylight and a week later the tortured and bullet-ridden bodies of the three men were found in Pedarak area of Turbat Balochistan.
The United Nations had expressed ‘serious concern’ over the killings and urged an immediate investigation because previously Ghulam Mohammad had helped in the safe release of UN official Mr Jhon Solecki.
However, there is nothing on record after the UN’s demand for an ‘immediate investigation’ whether the UN followed the case of triple murder or if any investigation happened at all.
The in-custody murder of Ghulam Mohammad Baloch and his friends opened a new wave of custodial killings of the previously enforced-disappeared Baloch across Balochistan and Karachi.
It is pertinent to mention that Pakistani forces also abducted Asif Yousaf, a nephew of Ghulam Mohammad Baloch from Karachi and killed him in custody.
The BNM in a statement has urged the United Nations to take notice of the abduction of Balach Baloch and play its role for his safe release.
