BALOCHISTAN: Victim of enforced disappearance, Kabeer Baloch’s sister in a statement issued to the media said, “It will be seven long years on March 27, 2016 to the enforced disappearance of my brother; Kabeer Baloch, and his friends, Mushtaq Baloch and Attaullah Baloch without any information about their whereabouts or confirmation whether they were alive.” Such are the existing conditions of the tragically forgotten Baloch people disappeared by the Pakistani security forces in Balochistan.
At present, there are more than 24 thousand Baloch missing persons including women and children. The range of the ages of the enforced disappeared by the Pakistani forces varies from 80-year-old to 9-year-old grade five students. The openly confessed failure of the government authorities regarding the recovery of the enforced disappeared civilians in Balochistan has created a human tragedy much ignored by the United Nations and the human rights groups who are criminally silent on the issue.
Quetta : Several family members of forced-disappeared Baloch have appeared before the Chief Justice and narrated their ordeals on Tuesday during a hearing. The CJ who, has resumed hearing cases of Baloch activists, has said he didn’t know what was going here [in Balochistan]. “Even yesterday four bullet riddle bodies were found in Killi Kabo. The evidence of Mehran Baloch and Mohammad Tariq’s abduction was given to the security agencies but instead of their release they were killed and dumped”, remarked the CJ.
During hearing the brother of Samiullah Baloch said that his brother was presented to courts by the police on several occasions but now the authorities were in denial about his whereabouts.
The aged mother of Hafiz Saeed-ul-Rehman Baloch burst into tears and said “We hope our loved ones will be released before 2013 but if you (CJ) are gone then we do not expect to see of our beloved relatives.” The CJ in response said “It is not like that. Have faith in God.”
