Three partially decomposed and mutilated dead bodies were found in the Killi Nohsar area of Quetta on Friday, the authorities have confirmed. The dead bodies were moved to the morgue in the civil hospital. Their identities are yet to be confirmed.

According to the details, the dead bodies were found in the Regi Nasiran area of Killi Nohsar in the outskirts of the provincial capital Quetta. From the photos posted on social media, it appears that the three individuals were killed and their dead bodies were thrown away in the rocky wilderness for disposal. According to the officials, the dead bodies appear several weeks old, but it is hard to confirm without medical examination and autopsy. One police officer said that the dead bodies are “unrecognizable” and have been shifted to the hospital for identification.

The gruesome sights as the one witnessed in Quetta on Friday are unfortunately all too familiar to the inhabitants of Balochistan. Over the years, countless Baloch families have shouldered the corpses of their loved ones who were killed and their dead bodies were thrown away. The “kill-and-dump” policy, as it has become known, is another horrendous facet of Balochistan’s human rights crisis.

Baloch nationalists blame the Pakistani security forces for this crisis. They allege that the security forces “abduct” innocent civilians without any justification, throw them in prisons for several years and then shoot them dead on the point-blank range. In recent months, the “kill-and-dump” practice has seen an exponential rise – the Pakistani forces, especially the Counter-Terrorism Department, has allegedly rounded up and killed tens of Baloch missing persons in fake encounters. They claim that these persons were “militants” or “terrorists”, but when subjected to rigorous scrutiny, these allegations don’t hold water. Baloch rights groups have identified most of the so-called “militants” as missing persons who were picked up by the forces from different areas of Balochistan.
