Open in new windowKarachi: Radio Gwank and Balochistan national newspapers have reported that five Baloch boys residents of Malir in Karachi were on their way to school when they were stopped by the members of MQM ‘an ethnic refugee group in Karachi’, the abductors made sure the boys were Baloch before whisking them away. Hours later four of the kidnapped boys were dumped in a roadside with bruised faces and soaring limbs, they were rushed to hospital by passersby. The fifth boy is still missing, believed to be in the custody of MQM members.

The relatives of the boys say they were shot at and one of them is in a critical condition. The injured boys have been named as Shahnawaz Baloch, Junaid Baloch, Sajid Baloch and Rafiq Baloch. Khalil Baloch son of Qadir Bux Baloch is still missing, believed to be in the custody of MQM armed men.

A Baloch woman resident of Malir speaking to radio Gwank said that their locality was under indiscriminate fire by “Mohajirs” refugees. She said their has always been tension between the Baloch and these Mohajir but in the recent days/after the issue of Gutter Baghicha they have escalated their actions against the Baloch in Karachi. She appealed the Baloch parties and resistance organisations to come to the aid of Baloch in Karachi.

On the other hand the acting president of BNP Mr Jahanzeb Jamaldini has said in a statement that if the Baloch in Karachi are not safe and not let to live in peace, then the Urdu speaking people all over Balochistan will have to face the consequence of targeting the Baloch of Karachi.
