Speaking at Quetta press Club, Nasuralla said the secret security agencies abducted his younger brother Samiullah Baloch at Shahwani Road Quetta but luckily he made a successful escape after the agencies car stopped at due to traffic jam.
He said: My younger brother was walking on Shawani road in Quetta when the armed men of secret agencies whisked him and put him in their vain but, because of the traffic jam he jumped off the vehicle and escaped from the brutal clutches of the agencies.” He said his brother brutally beaten up while by the security agencies in their car.
He warned that government secret agencies will be held responsible for any harm to him or any of his family members during the course of his struggle for the safe recovery of abducted Baloch.
He said his brother had nothing to do with his activism for missing persons’ rights. He also said that his younger brother was not affiliated with any political party. The arresting and beating up his brother was a pressure tactic of Pakistani agencies to force him [Nasrullah] to abandon the long march. He made it clear that he will not back down from long march and the intimidating tactics cannot weaken his resolve for the rights of the Baloch people.
He informed the press that the long march headed by Mama Qadeer Baloch has crossed Lukpass Mountain and it is well on its way. He said the long journey in support of missing persons set off Sunday from Quetta to protest the illegal abduction and enforced disappearances of Baloch people in Balochistan. “Baloch children and elderly people are participating in the 700km long march,” he said.
The long march he said would take around 15 to 20 days to reach to Karachi. He said the government would be held responsible for any ham or displeasing occurrences to any participant of the long march during this humanitarian journey. He added: “Voice for Baloch Missing Persons had asked the government for security arrangement but they did not heed to our request. We are marching all alone.”
He told the press that nothing can deter the long march from its journey until it achieves its objective. In reply to a question, he said that no official from government had contacted VBMP in this regards.
At the end of the press conference, he appealed the Edhi Foundation to provide an ambulance of doctors and other necessary apparatus to the caravan of Voice for Missing Persons for emergency help.
