Two individuals in Western(Iranian-administrated) Balochistan have been sentenced to death, while a third has been found dead, raising concerns about the growing trend of such incidents in the region.
Ghulam Siddiq S/O Mohd Musa, a resident of Nemroz, faced a death sentence in Bandar Abbas after being accused of involvement in drug dealings. He was arrested in the year 1399 (2020 in the Gregorian calendar) of the Irani Calendar on drug-related charges.
Similarly, Musa Shah Bakhsh S/O Akbar, from Hajiabad, Zahidan, received a death sentence in Central Jail Zahidan. He was apprehended in the year 1398 ( 2019 in the Gregorian calendar) of the Irani Calendar for alleged drug dealings.
The imposition of death sentences and accusations of drug dealing appear to becoming alarmingly common in Western Balochistan, with both Ghulam Siddiq and Musa being executed a few days ago by Irani revolutionary forces following court orders.
Adding to the grim scenario, a chilling incident occurred in Nekshar, Western Balochistan, where a man named Mustafa Regi was fatally shot by unidentified gunmen in Karen Dok. The assailants left no traces behind, leaving the community puzzled.
Initially, locals found Mustafa’s car, but their search later led them to his lifeless body. The police have taken custody of the deceased man’s remains, but the identity and motive of the killers remain shrouded in mystery.
