Whereas, a couple of months earlier, two shepherd were killed allegedly by the Pakistani forces in Mashkay. However the deceased were not ascertained at that time.
Meanwhile Balochistan’s largest “Pro-independence” political party, Baloch National Movement (BNM) released an aftermath video of the incident and termed the incident as the war crime of Pakistani forces.
According to description, both the victims are brothers and identified by the names of Wajo and Shoaib sons of Muhammad Omar, who were shepherds and were “martyred” while they were grazing their cattle. Wajo and Shoaib belong to the family of an elderly Baloch, Waja Saaho, whose family’s 7 members were “brutally killed by Pakistani army” in an aerial bombardment in December 2012.
As per BNM, due to lack of media access, such news don’t reach to people and such incidents become horrible memories and nightmares for the residents.
It is to be recalled that human rights groups and local activists allege Pakistani forces of committing grave human rights violations in the region. However, amnesty and other Rights groups including the UK have expressed concerns over human rights violations in Balochistan.
