PAKISTAN: Twenty four separatists were extrajudicially killed in Sindh and Balochistan provinces after their abduction

The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has received information that twenty four activists from separatist groups were extrajudicial killed in Sindh and Balochistan provinces while they were campaigning against the general elections. Among the dead many bodies were found with bullet and torture marks. Most of the bodies were found on the same day while one activist’s body was found some days before the major incident. The deceased persons were abducted by the police and rangers in uniform along with some in plain clothes and it is suspected that they are agents of intelligence agencies.There is a strong movement in Balochistan province against the coming general elections by nationalist forces who think that Pakistan has occupied their land by force. The same situation is developing in Sindh province where a sizeable section feels that through general elections the Pakistan army and the largest province of Punjab, exploit the resources of Sindh and usurp the fundamental rights of the smaller provinces.
