UN urged to probe ‘reign of terror’ in Balochistan

KARACHI: The Voice for Baloch Missing Persons has urged international organisations, including the United Nations, to conduct an inquiry into the issue of enforced disappearances as the people no longer trust the government agencies operating in Balochistan. Speaking at a press conference at the Karachi Press Club on Monday, VBMP representatives said the organisation would hold a rally and a seminar on March 11 to highlight the issue. Those who spoke at the press conference included Qadeer Baloch, Nasir Karim Baloch, Comrade Wahid and Zahid Bugti. They alleged that various government agencies picked up people in the presence of witnesses, and after some time their tortured and mutilated bodies were found at different places. They said the involvement of state agencies in the disappearances was clear from the fact that many missing people, about whom the government had earlier been claiming ignorance, had been brought to court.  http://www.dawn.com/2012/02/28/un-urged-to-probe-reign-of-terror-in-balochistan.html
