On a cold night of a January, armed men barged into house in a cul-de-sec and within minutes an elderly man was taken out of the house. He was forced onto his knees and a bullet was fired in his temple. The old man dropped on his face and blood gushed onto his beard. No questions were asked and the elderly man was not told any of his crimes. The cold summary execution lasted for few minutes only. The armed men jumped back into their vehicles and disappeared in the dead of night, leaving behind only the thick smoke of SUVs, a bleeding body and a family wretched for eternity.
A Baluch man has staged a sit-in since July 16 at the city’s mosque, as the location of his son arrested over protesting mass rape of 41 women has remained unknown for nearly one month, Baluch Activists Campaign reported on Monday.
In a video clip circulated on social media, Gholam Ghader Bozorgzadeh expressed despair about his son’s situation, declaring that he is resuming his sit-in, demanding the authorities to reveal the location of his son, Abullah Bozorgzadeh.

What’s new? Pakistani leaders say the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), launched in 2015, is a “game changer” for the country’s ailing economy. But opaque plans for the corridor, the upheaval likely to affect locals along its route, and profits flowing mostly to outsiders could stir unrest. The government has repressed CPEC critics.
Why does it matter? CPEC could help revive Pakistan’s economy. But if it moves ahead without more thorough debate in parliament and provincial legislatures and consultation with locals, it will deepen friction between the federal centre and periphery, roil provinces already long neglected, widen social divides and potentially create new sources of conflict.

It was beyond comprehensible turn of events for inhabitants of Tadanch, when, according to some reports, nearly 20 people died and more than 150 others reached the brink of death within a span of only few days. It is now estimated that the number of deaths could rise.
The far-flung area of Tadanch, which is located in Jhao district of Awaran, has a total population of less than 400, who live in 9 to 10 small villages. There are neither health facilities nor any mobile signals in the area. For even small errands the villagers travel for days on camels and donkeys to the city of Bela.
