Three professors in the University of Balochistan, Quetta, have gone missing under mysterious circumstances. Their vehicle was found in a locality in Mastung. Two of the professors were later released, but one of them remains missing.

The professors – identified as Dr Liaquat Sanni, Shabir Shahwani and Nizam Shahwani – were travelling from Quetta to Khuzdar to visit the ongoing examinations, but mysteriously went missing along the way. Two of the professors were found in Kanak area of Mastung, but one of them – Dr Liaquat Sanni – remains missing. The authorities have said they are carrying out further investigations.

According to the details, the recovered professors have not given any information. Several such incidents have taken place in Balochistan where teachers and students have gone missing. The security forces and the law enforcement agencies have been blamed in most of the incidents.

Liaquat Sani was serving as the Chairman of the Brahui department in the University of Balochistan in Quetta and was also known for his research on Brahui language. He has authored several books, scholarly articles and has also earned a PhD in Brahui language.

The news of his disappearance has made waves in Balochistan and has attracted widespread condemnation. Baloch Student Organisation Pajjar has termed the incident as an anti-education step and has said that this is not the first time such an incident has happened in Balochistan.

On other hand Mama Qadeer, the Vice Chairman of Voice For Baloch Missing Persons, has also condemned Dr Sanni’s disappeance. In a statement the stalwart activist has said that if people like Dr Sanni are not safe then one can envisage what the security situation of Balochistan is like.
