A Baloch student has been killed in front of his mother and younger sister in Aabsir, Turbat. He was shot at least ten times.
According to details, Muhammad Hayat a student of Karachi University, who was on vacations in his hometown Turbat, was killed by enraged personnel of Pakistani Army on Thursday morning. He was summarily executed and shot at least ten times after a convoy of Pakistani military was targeted with an IED nearby.
Muhammad Hayat was in his date palm field along with family when the Pakistani security forces were targeted with an IED fitted on a motorbike. According to locals, the security forces cordoned the area and resorted to aerial firing initially but then bundled many civilians including Muhammad Hayat.
Hayat was initially punched and kicked while his sister and mother pleaded for mercy, the witnesses told TBP. However, he was then shot multiple times in front of his sister and mother, who have now approached Police to file a First Information Report (FIR).
According to a local, the forces suffered causalities in the IED attack and therefore punished the civilians in turn.
The Pakistani authorities on the other hand have claimed that Hayat’s death was accidental.
