Balochistan: More than 12 thousand people arrested under National Action Plan: Durrani


Quetta: Balochistan’s home secretary, Akbar Hussain Durrani, confessed during an interview on Tuesday that more than 12 thousand people have been arrested under NAP so far across Balochistan.
Mr. Durrani said the victims were arrested after Pakistani police, Levis, Intelligence Agencies, and para-military Frontier Corps carried out 2622 ‘intelligence based’ operations.
“Pakistani forces also killed 323 ‘miscreants’ and arrested 72 injured persons,” Durrani said adding that the security situation in Balochistan was improving.
The Home Secretary, however, did not say anything about the whereabouts of arrested people neither has he elaborated on their well-being.
The critics of government and human rights organisation have long been saying that Pakistani forces have abducted and disappeared thousands of people from Balochistan.
The voice for Baloch Missing Persons and other local human rights campaign groups argue that most of the abducted people are peaceful political, student and human rights activists.
The Asian Human Rights Commission in a recent statement said that Pakistani forces are punishing people for not taking part in ‘state sponsored’ election and opposing the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
The VBMP says that Pakistani security forces have abducted more than 20,000 Baloch activists and killed around 5000 under the infamous ‘kill and dump policy’. This phrase was coined after Pakistani forces have started killing enforced-disappeared Baloch under custody.
Lately, Pakistan forces have also been killing enforced-disappeared Baloch in ‘staged encounters’ where previously missing Baloch are killed and dump in the name of gun battles against Baloch freedom fighters.
