Balochistan: Human Rights activists and lawyers should visit war torn regions: VBMP

Balochistan Quetta: The chairman of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons, Nasrullah Baloch, has appealed None Governmental Organisations (NGOs) to form an impartial committee comprising Political & Human Rights activists and lawyers to visit Balochistan’s affected areas and compile a fact-finding report.

Mr Baloch made this appeal after a delegation from Bolan Balochistan called on him on Friday to raise the issue of military attacks and abduction of innocent civilians including women and children.

The delegation informed the VBMP representatives that Pakistani forces have targeted unarmed civilians and abducted women and children during their offensives in Bolan and surrounding areas.

They also complained that few days ago Pakistani forces claimed to have killed 10 fighters in gun battle but in reality they were poor people who had been abducted in previous military operations.

Nasrullah Baloch said, “before the abduction of Baloch women and children, VBMP has also received reports discovery of mutilated bodies, burning of houses and torture against women security forces in different areas of Balochistan.”

He said that such acts on part of security forces are violation of human rights and that VBMP strongly condemns targeting of unarmed civilians.
