A rights group, who documents rights violations mainly in Balochsitan region, has expressed ‘deep concern’ about well-being of a Baloch activist that was deported by UAE to Pakistan.

In a tweet, Baloch Human Rights Organization (BHRO) stated, “We are deeply concerned about the well-being of Rashid Hussain.”

On Tuesday, BHRO tweeted a statement, “We are deeply concern about well-being of Rashid Hussain. He was forcibly returned to Pakistan from the UAE on June 22, 2019. His whereabouts are unknown since then”.

They further stated: “We urge the government of Pakistan to reveal his whereabouts and allow him to communicate with his family and his lawyer and to be given access to his legal rights”.

Rashid Hussain Baloch was arrested by UAE intelligence agencies from UAE on December 26, 2018. On July 3, 2019, according to Pakistani media, he was moved to Pakistan through Interpol.

However, Baloch political parties including Rashid Hussein’s Faimly, have denied Pakistan’s claims, saying that Rashid Hussain was illegally deported via a private plane to Noshki city of Balochistan on June 22, 2019.

Rashid Hussain’s Faimly has also appealed human rights organizations to help in Rashid Hussain Baloch’s recovery.
