As many as 12 person have been arrested and taken away by Pakistani security forces during a house to house search operation in Dasht, Balochistan.

According to local TBP correspondent, in a joint raid by Pakistani security forces and personnel of intelligence agencies, various houses were searched in Kashap area of Dasht, Balochistan.

Local sources have claimed that at least 12 pesons have gone missing after the operation as detainees were taken to undisclosed locations.

In early dawn raids today, women and children were also allegedly mishandled.

The detainees have been identified as 70-year-old Peer Baksh s/o Dost Mohammad, 60-year-old Gaaji s/o Ibrahim, Hashim s/o Haji Deen Mohammad, Muhasib s/o Qadir Dad, Abdullah s/o Sher Mohammad, two brothers Naeem and Naseem s/o Barkat and Abdul Rasool and his three sons Adnan, Yasir and minor Parvez. The identification of another person is yet to be ascertained.

Abdullah s/o Sher Mohammad’s brother Waheed is already under incommunicado detention since some time.

Balochistan is plagued by the enforced disappearances of Baloch youth and activists. However, recently 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’.

According to Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP), a campaign group by families of Baloch missing persons, tens of thousands of Baloch men, women and children are under custody of Pakistani forces.

Mama Qadeer, VBMP’s leader, is currently in Geneva to raise the missing persons issue with UN authorities and other international bodies.
