HRCP protest violation of human rights in Balochistan

QUETTA: Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP), Balochistan Chapter, on Saturday, took out a rally in Quetta against the violation of human rights in the province.
Participants of the rally began their march from Jinnah Road and after passing through various roads held a demonstration outside the Quetta Press Club. HRCP said recovery of mutilated bodies of Baloch missing persons, sectarian killings, and subjecting Hindu minorities to kidnapping for ransom were on rise with no attention from the government and the superior judiciary.
Addressing the gathering, HRCP office bearer Tahir Hussain said HRCP published three to four reports about the worsening human rights situation in Balochistan and demanded immediate action to retain peace and tranquility but to no avail.
“The mutilated dead bodies of over 200 Baloch missing persons were found dumped in desolate places of the province with no investigation,” he added. He said at least 30 people from Hindu community had been kidnapped during the past few years, and all were released by their kidnappers after receiving huge chunk of money as ransom
