The Pakistani security forces allegedly carried out a raid on Sept. 4 in the Giresha area of Balochistan’s district Khuzdar and forcibly disappeared six individuals of a single family, including a doctor, an elderly man and his four sons. The doctor has safely returned home, but the rest of the detainees are yet to see the light of the day.

The local sources identified the four detainees as Shah Muhammad and his four sons Khair Baksh, Dad Karim, Maqsood and Naeem. The other individual detained in the raid was identified as Dr. Karim Baksh.

The news of the alleged “mass enforced disappearance” spread through the city like wildfire, engendering public outrage. Scores of civilians took to the roads and blocked the main Quetta-Karachi RCD Highway in protest, demanding the safe release of the six detainees. The protestors raised slogans against the security forces, calling them “barbaric” and “inhumane.”

The outrage subsided when the district administration intervened and promised the protestors that the detainees would soon return home.
