Balochistan: Sister appeals for her brother's safe release

ANI  |  Quetta [Pakistan] 

A sister has appealed the human rights organisations and media to help her raise voice for her brother's safe release, who was abducted by the Pakistani security forces on December 15, 2017.

Mahrang Baloch, daughter of late Ghaffar Lagov Baloch, held a press conference at Press Club on Thursday about her brother Baloch's abduction at the hand of Pakistani security forces.

She said her 20-year-old brother son of [Langove Baloch] is a student of in Science College, and the Pakistani security forces arrested him in her presence 'before her eyes'. 'The forces severely tortured him before taking him away.'

"We thought he will be released after interrogation or at least will be presented to a of if he has done anything wrong. So, we waited for him but we have not heard anything about him since his abduction and nobody has informed us about his whereabouts and well being," Mahran said.

"My mother and I went to register the FIR (First Information Report) at the police station on December 21 and 22, but police refused to lodge our FIR and cooperate with us. After this we submitted a petition in [Balochistan] High Court," she added.

She further said that her family have contacted all institutions including, the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, but it has been 27 days that her brother has still not been released and the entire family is suffering from mental trauma.

She appealed the media to become her voice and tell the civil society, judiciary and Pakistan's rulers about her pain and her family's difficulties.

"My brother was the only guardian of my family," Mahran said.

She hoped that the media, and the judiciary will play their due role to recover her brother.

She said, "We five sisters have only one brother - - and we are his dependents. After his abduction, we are in distress and pain.

"We expect human loving people to help us. We are peaceful citizens and our brother has no affiliation with any political party. If there are any charges and allegation against him, he should be presented to a of and we will happily accept the decision of the court," she added.
