Sitting in the Voice for Baloch Missing Persons camp in front of Quetta Press Club on Sunday, the family members disclosed the details of Sana Baloch’s disappearance. Baloch, an MPhil student in Allama Iqbal Open University, went missing in May this year in Kharan. According to his family members, he was travelling on a bike to his hometown, Banap, when he was reportedly abducted by the Pakistani Military Intelligence (MI) on the way.

Farooq reportedly confessed that Mr Baloch was in their custody, and said that he will be released once the investigation is over. Fourth months after the confession, Sana Baloch remains missing.
