2 bullet-riddled bodies found in Pasni
Levies personnel recovered the mutilated bodies on a tip-off.
QUETTA: Two bullet-riddled and mutilated bodies of Baloch missing persons were found dumped in the coastal town of Pasni on Sunday. The deceased were identified as Abdul Khaliq and Zahid Hussain Dashti, a local official of the Levies force revealed.
“Levies personnel, acting on a tip-off, rushed to Kalag Kulanch, a desolated area of the coastal town of Pasni, where two bodies were found dumped,” the official said.
The bodies were taken to a nearby government hospital for autopsy where the bodies were identified. “The victims had bullet wounds in the head and chest and bore multiple marks of torture,” hospital sources said.
According to family sources, 31-year-old Khaliq, who was an Imam at a mosque in Jiwani town of the Gwadar district, went missing about three months ago. While 28-year-old Dashti, a local trader in Turbat, was reported missing some two months ago.
The relatives of both victims accused security agencies of the kidnapping and killing. “Our demand is only to produce our loved ones before courts if they were involved in any offence or committed any crime,” said Nasurallah Baloch, chairman of the Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VFBMP), an organisation working for recovery of missing persons.
The organisation puts the figure of missing persons at 14,000. They claim they have complete details about 1,300 missing persons. However, security forces and government functionaries categorically deny allegations that they are involved in these killings.
On Saturday, a body with a bullet hole through the skull was found dumped in the suburbs. The body was later identified as Fida Shah who went missing about a month ago.
As many as 233 bullet-riddled and mutilated bodies have so far been found in different parts of Balochistan since June 2010.
