The Pakistani security forces have “abducted” 10 people, including the tribal elder of the Darkani branch of the Shirani tribe and two women, in a raid in Jaffarabad, Balochistan.

The tribal elder, Wadera Ghulam Muhammad Shirani, was in Sibbi for a court appearance when he was taken away along with his four security guards, sources said.

The security forces also raided his house in the Goth Wadera Muhammad Akbar Shirani area of Rojhan, district Jaffarabad, where they abducted his three brothers and two women from his household, sources added.

The whereabouts and condition of the 10 abductees are still unknown.

It should be noted that the Baloch Yakjehti Committee (BYC) has been protesting in Islamabad against the “enforced disappearances” and “extrajudicial killings” in Balochistan for the past eleven days. The protest is the culmination of the “Long March Against Baloch Genocide”, which started in Turbat in the aftermath of the murder of four Baloch missing persons by the Pakistani security forces.

Despite the ongoing protest, which has garnered significant media attention, “enforced disappearances” in Balochistan show no signs of slowing down.
