Pakistani forces committed gross violations’ of human rights in Balochistan in 2012

( January 2, 2013, Baluchistan, Sri Lanka Guardian) Balochistan remained a breeding ground of killings and dumping of common political workers in 2012 with brutal force involving indiscriminate air and artillery assaults on residential areas and apparent targeting of civilians, and torture, which constitute war crimes and crimes against humanity, pushing the political confrontation into an internal armed conflict.  
The Pakistani forces increasingly conducted offensive operations against Baloch civilian and political workers in 2012. Military intelligence (MI), Inter Service Intelligence Agency (ISI) paramilitary forces with the help of Pakistan army have carried out serious abuses like kidnapping, torture, and what appear to be extrajudicial executions of common Baloch civilian in 2012. The spread and strengthening of fighting have led to a dire humanitarian situation with hundreds of thousands internally displaced or seeking refuge in European countries. According to Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) Pakistani paramilitary forces and law enforcement agencies have committed “disgusting violations of human rights" since Baloch insurgency intensified
