“I and my fellow protesters have received death threats but we will never end our peaceful protest for the recovery of our beloved ones who are being assaulted in torture cells,” Qadir Baloch said

Qadir Baloch added that chief justice of Supreme Court had taken notice of burning of strike camp. “We have hopes that CJ would do something for recovery of missing persons but so far his efforts are not yielding results,” he said
