QUETTA: Daughter of a missing person, Dr Din Muhammad Baloch, has called upon national and international humanitarian organisations to play their due role for immediate recovery of her missing father.
Addressing a press conference at a hunger strike camp set up by relatives of missing persons, she alleged that her father had been kidnapped by security personnel on June 28, 2009, from his government residence in tehsil Ornach.
“The kidnappers had beaten and tortured my father in front of a watchman and other employees while dragging him towards official vehicles,” she claimed. The FIR was registered against a secret agency in Ornach police station but there was no progress in investigation into the illegal detention.
“The eyewitnesses have recorded their statements before the Supreme Court, Balochistan High Court, Judicial Commission and investigation committees that my father is in illegal custody of government functionaries but so far no measure has been taken to recover my father”, she complained, adding that she had also recorded her protest in Islamabad along with other relatives of Baloch missing persons.
“I appealed the humanitarian organisations to intervene in the matter and I had apprehensions that my father would be brutally tortured if steps were not taken to recover him immediately as his body will also be found dumped like the other Baloch missing persons,” she added.
Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) President, Nasarullah Baloch, said that more than 161 bullet-riddled bodies of Baloch missing persons had been found from different parts of Balochistan in the last ten months.
