panjgur-balochistan-pakistanAccording to the details police recovered four mutilated bodies in Panjgur district of Balochistan. The dead bodies stuffed into two gunny bags were found in a desolate place near a river.

“Police recovered four bodies from Rakhshan Nadi and Washbud areas of Panjgur and the bodies have been shifted to District Headquarters Hospital, Panjgur for identification,’’ confirmed  a police officer

According to Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP), a human rights organization struggling for the safe release of Baloch missing persons in Balochistan, more than 2,000 dead bodies have been found in Balochistan in the last five years — all of whom were Baloch political activists.

A large number of family members of missing persons gathered at the hospital for identification of the bodies, a doctor in the hospital said on condition of anonymity owing to the sensitivity of the matter.

According to sources in the Balochistan Home and Tribal Affairs Department, so far 53 mutilated bodies have been found in Quetta, Khuzdar, Turbat, Panjgur and other troubled areas of the province during the current year.

However, Baloch nationalist groups say the figure is higher than what was being quoted by the officials. A shutter down strike was observed on Thursday in Kharan, Panjgur and other parts of Balochistan on the call of Baloch Varna Movement against the killings. Strict security measures were put in place to ensure peace during the strike.

A school van was also set on fire and parents stopped sending their children to the schools. A number of firing incidents have also taken place outside the school buildings to spread fear and panic.

Currently Panjgur is being marked for deteriorating law and order, where 50 people were killed in the last 8 months whereas 65 attempted murders took place.
