Another incident of enforced disappearance has been reported from Hoshab, Balochistan.

According to sources, security forces have allegedly abducted a Baloch man named Manzoor Baloch from Hoshab area of district Kech, in a raid on 30th of May.

Despite government claims of resolving the issues of missing persons, enforced disappearances have seen a rise in Balochistan.

Families of enforced disappeared persons have been protesting for over a decade for the safe release of their loved ones. According to the Voice for Baloch Missing Persons, every day a new family appears in our protest camp, searching for their loved ones.

VBMP further stressed, on one hand state forces are releasing a small number of previously abducted people but the number of new abductions in Balochistan are rising at a much higher pace.

VBMP has urged the Federal and Balochistan government to take serious action against enforced disappearances in Balochistan. The organization, struggling for safe release of Baloch missing persons, additionally demanded that ‘enforced disappearances’ should be classified as a crime.
