Activists of various Sindhi political parties and members of civil society on Sunday staged a hunger strike outside Karachi Press Club (KPC) to protest against the alleged enforced disappearances of citizens in Sindh. The protest was also attended by families of the “missing persons”.

Sorath Lohar, the representative of Voice for Missing Persons, claimed that so far around 60 people had gone “missing from different parts of the province whose whereabouts were not known”.

She alleged that law enforcers, some of them dressed in plain clothes, took away four more persons who were sitting in the hunger strike outside the press club in Karachi.

The arrested protesters were identified as Zahid Bugti, Jani Panhwar, Altaf Shah and Ishaq Mangrio.

Human Rights Commission of Pakistan and various nationalists parties — Sindhi Adabi Sangat, Awami Jamhori Party and others — supported the hunger strike
