The boy was arrested during a raid at his house by Pakistani forces
According to the details received by the Balochistan Post, a 15-year-old boy was taken away by Pakistani forces in an abduction-styled-arrest during a raid at his house in Hoshab Dumb town of Kech district.
The boy was identified as Arif S/O Shakir R/O Hoshab Dumb, Kech district.
The family told TBP that Arif had been shifted to an undisclosed area, and they fear for his life.
Such abductions during military raids have become a norm in Balochistan as Pakistan’s secret agencies and armed forces have allegedly hundreds of Balochs in their custody.
Voice for Baloch Missing Persons, an organization of families of forcibly disappeared people, has been protesting against such abduction for a decade and has come in the spotlight after the joining of Seema Baloch, sister of missing Shabbir Baloch, and other affected families.
Baloch National Movement(BNM), a pro-independence political party, has released its monthly reports on the human rights violation in Balochistan.
The report revealed that in the final month of 2018, 65 people have been abducted by Pakistani forces during 48 military operations across Balochistan. 27 bodies have been found, among which, 12 were ethnic Balochs and 4 couldn’t be identified.
International campaign groups including Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International also accuse Pakistani security forces as the perpetrators of ‘illegal abductions in Balochistan’.
