BALOCHISTAN: The extremely decomposed body of a Baloch youth, abducted three years ago, was found in suburbs of Panjgur Balochistan on Wednesday 21 September, 2016.
According to details 17-year-old Mohammad Jan son of Faiz Mohammad Shambezai was abducted by Pakistani forces and their local collaborator during a football match on 15 March, 2013.
NCRI – According to reports, Ajab Gol Nour Zehi, a Baluch prisoner and resident of Iranshahr in Sistan & Baluchistan province, in a report revealed a part of horrific and medieval tortures imposed on him by the government agents in prisons.
He writes in part of his report:
“They ruthlessly subjected me to beating with cables on the head and face and back such that after nearly one and half years the signs of the flogging with cables can be seen on my body.
It is the Pakistani Army that always tends to solve the problem through force, by picking people from their houses, torturing and killing them and throwing their bodies on the roadside.

At a time when Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been speaking of “atrocities” in Jammu and Kashmir and the right of the people to determine their own future, Baloch nationalist leader Brahumdagh Bugti says this is precisely what the people of Balochistan want as they seek to unshackle themselves from Islamabad.
At the same time, the Baloch Republican Party (BRP) president, who lives in exile in Switzerland, said he was open to dialogue if that would arrive in a “decent way” in which “Pakistan quits our country”, as he expressed confidence that India would accept his request for asylum, now referred to the Union Home Ministry.
Bugti spoke on myriad issues during an hour-long telephonic conversation with IANS.
