‘Hundreds of children, women missing in Balochistan’

As many as 14,362 people, including 150 women, have “disappeared” in Balochistan since 2001, and 370 mutilated bodies have been found in different parts of the volatile province so far. The News learnt of these statistics from Qadeer Baloch, vice president of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons, on Monday.  Sitting in a camp in front of the Karachi Press Club (KPC) since January 1 to protest against the “disappearances” of Baloch people, Qadeer said about 250,000 people from Marri and Bugti areas had migrated to other provinces and even to Afghanistan since their lives were in danger.  The Voice for Baloch Missing Persons has so far organised three protest camps outside the KPC, two in Islamabad and several in Quetta
