Awaran: Detained women shifted to hospital due to torture


Four women from different areas of Awaran district of Balochistan were taken into custody by security forces and moved to an unknown location, who were later charged with terrorism offences by producing them with weapons and ammunition in front of media.

As per the sources, Bibi Hameeda and Bibi Nazil among the detained women have been shifted to the hospital due to the alleged violence.

According to the official statement, the police and Levies have arrested the women following a joint operation on the complaints and identification by the locals of Awaran. Official statement claims that grenades, three pistols and bullets have been recovered from arrested women.

The women have been accused of facilitating the banned Baloch Liberation Front (BLF) and the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA), but it is not clear where and how the women were detained.

The Baloch Human Rights Organization (BHRO), on the other hand, claims that the women were abducted from their homes and handed over to Levis after being detained for 24 hours.

BHRO and VBMP protested against the detention of Baloch women, in front of Quetta Press Club. Whereas, all Baloch political and social groups have been strongly condemning the incident.
