Baloch Republican Army (BRA), a “pro-independence” armed group, has said that the people arrested from Awaran are in their custody and “are being interrogated”.
The spokesman for the organization, Beebgar Baloch, said on social networking site Twitter that “six Pakistani army facilitators from Punjab have been arrested and are in the custody of our organisation”.
The Twitter account affiliated with the organisation claimed that the fate of the six persons will be decided under humanitarian and international laws.
It may be recalled that six persons were recently abducted by armed men from Madag Kalat, kolowah area of Awaran while they were passing through the area in trucks, where they were allegedly going to deliver supplies to the Pakistani Army.
However, the government authorities claimed the abductees are oridinary labourers.
