Two more go missing from Kech


Two persons have been abducted from Kech district of Balochistan on Thursday

According to details received by The Balochistan Post, two persons have been abducted from Buleda area of district Kech.

“Abdain s/o Usman from Buleda Reko while Shahjahan s/o Master Saleh from Buleda Meenaz were arrested by Pakistani forces in a raid and taken to an undisclosed location”, locals said.

The term ‘abducted’ is widely used in Balochistan to connote arrests made by security forces as the arrested are not presented before court of law and instead kept in military camps.

According to Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP), a campaign group by families of victims, more than 20,000 Baloch men, women and children are under Pakistani custody. VBMP also alleges that at least 5,000 missing persons have been killed and dumped over last one decade.

International campaign groups including Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International also accuse Pakistani security forces as the culprits of ‘illegal abductions in Balochistan’.
Pakistani Military denies the allegations.
