PAKISTAN: A man is missing for the second time along with his nephew after being abducted by the law enforcement agencies

thumbnail imageThe Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has received information that a man who was kept in army detention centers for more than nine months after his abduction by secret agencies and the Frontier Corp (FC) was again abducted, this time with his nephew and both of them remain missing. The police refused to file a First Information Report (FIR) despite strict orders of the Supreme Court to do so in cases of missing persons. He had just recovered from his wounds of torture inflicted during the illegal detention in army torture cells. He and his nephew were the only bread winners of their families.
It is feared by the family members that the victims would be killed following their disappearance and illegal detention by the FC as it is a common phenomenon in Balochistan that after abduction the torture-mutilated bodies are found on the road side.
