PAKISTAN: For the arrest of one guerilla leader, military units kill more than fifty innocent citizens, including women and children

pakistan-army-convoy3The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has received information that military units have bombarded more than a dozen villages in three districts of Balochistan based on information about the presence of a guerilla fighter fighting for the independence of Balochistan. Independent sources claim that more than 50 persons, including women and children, were killed. In just one district, more than 32 villagers were killed and many persons were displaced as their houses were completely destroyed. The military and one of its units, the Frontier Corp (FC), have arrested many persons for interrogation to try to learn the whereabouts of the guerrilla leader, Dr. Allah Nazar, and shifted them to unknown places. Units have made torture cells in the affected areas and within two days the mutilated bodies of two persons were found, bearing marks of torture. The children and mother of Dr. Allah Nazar were also badly injured during the military action.
