561bfa76-f88e-74d2Balochistan:  The Pakistani forces have reportedly abducted at least seven Baloch activists from different areas of Balochistan on today (Monday).

According reports a Baloch activist namely Abdul Mutlib Baloch s/o Iman Din Baloch was abducted by Pakistani forces from Punjgur on Sunday (April 07, 2013).

He was travelling along with his family from Washuk to Punjgur when personnel of Pakistani forces and intelligence agencies stopped them at Punjgor custom. The family member of the Baloch activist including women and children were harassed and beaten up before he was dragged to the forces vehicles and taken toward an undisclosed location. Mr Abdul Mutlib is reportedly affiliated with the Baloch Republican Party (BRP), a Baloch political party headed by Brahumdagh Bugti.

Another four activists of BRP have reportedly been abducted by Pakistani forces from Nushki earlier today (Monday). The abducted activists were identified as Shehak Baloch, Zakaria Baloch and two other activists. Their whereabouts remained unknown until the filing of this report.

Separately, Pakistani forces attacked the houses of innocent Baloch people in Uch Muzoi area of Dera Bugti this morning. The forces broke into the houses of Baloch villagers and violated the sanctity of the Baloch households. Forces harassed women and children during the offensive and torched several houses of the Baloch civilians.

An 82 years old elderly Baloch namely Nehal Khan Bugti was abducted along with his son during the offensive. Whereabouts and fate of all the abducted Baloch people remain unknown. Fears run high about the security and safety of the people abducted Baloch, as most often the enforced-disappeared Baloch are killed in custody and their dead bodies are dumped in desolated areas bearing signs of inhuman torture and bullet wounds on their heads and chest.

The BRP in a press release appealed the international community, human rights organizations, United Nations, European Union and civilized people of the world to take immediate notice over on-going genocide of the Baloch people and play their due role to stop the continuous human rights violations including heinous crimes such as enforced disappearances and extra-judicial killings by Pakistani forces in Balochistan.
