Below are the quoted words of Shafi Baloch:
“ I was arrested in front of Bolan Medical College Quetta when I was returning home after attending a public gathering in the college. At the time I was being taken away, I was severely beaten by the officials of Barori police station. In police station I was verbally abused and humiliated in every way possible, they kept on beating me and asking me questions about the contacts I had saved in my cell phone, after being beaten for about two hours I was blindfolded and taken to some higher official where I was welcomed with punches and kicks coming from all the sides.
I didn’t know whether it was police or the army of Pakistan as I was unable to see anything as I was blindfolded. After asking me several questions regarding India’s, Afghanistan’s and America’s involvement in the Baloch freedom movement and not getting satisfactory answers I was taken to some far place as it took quite a while for us to reach there. Each question was asked with a kick or punch on the sensitive parts of my body but I didn’t know even bitter things were about to come. As I was brought to this new place where I was kept in a very dark cell, and I was asked to admit that the Baloch Students Organization ( Azaad) is linked with Armed groups. I said, I am member of BSO –azaad and that we were not involved in the armed struggle against Pakistan army, our organization is unarmed. I didn’t have any idea of what to reply. I was made naked and hanged upside down for about two days. I was not given anything to eat; from time to time some guy came and talked with me in Punjabi (language spoken by the ruling ethnic group in Pakistan). I was asked to admit that I was a terrorist, when I refused to say that he beat me severely.
Once an army official, who looked a quite gentleman with a long beard wrote “Baloch” with a sharp pen on my forehead and then he urinated on that. I was beaten severely by that official and while he was beating me he kept on singing verses from Pakistan’s National anthem and saying “Long Live Pakistan”. I was also given electric shocks after the officer urinated on my face; the electric shocks made me unconscious for a while, but as I came back in my senses further shocks were given so that I may not have a moment of relief.
I was told by an interrogator that the cell in which I was kept in also contained Maulana Farooq Sanjrani, Safar Khan Marri and Hassan Marri (Baloch abductees). I also heard sounds of helicopters landing and taking off outside the area where I was kept. I heard the voice other Baloch friends, who were kept in the adjacent lock-ups, they were speaking with each other in Balochi or Brahvi (languages spoken by Baloch people). The torture I faced was inhuman and barbaric, but I still believe myself amongst the luckier one to come out alive.
I also came to know of Baloch who were physically paralysed and many were mentally ill and had lost their mental capabilities. After being severely tortured in the way I mentioned I was again a day blindfolded and was thrown out of a car on some road, I didn’t know where it was as I was not conscious enough to even recognise people. At the time I was being left I was asked not to speak a word of what had happened to me or else they would kill me, but today I am speaking to let the world know about the conditions of thousands of Baloch that are facing inhuman torture by the hand of Pakistani army and Intelligence agencies.”
