Shutter-down strike observed in Balochistan

Occupied Baluchistan, QUETTA: A shutter-down strike was observed in Khuzdar, Awaran, Mashkey and Kech districts of Balochistan on Wednesday in response to a call made by the Baloch National Front (BNF) against missing Baloch people and the alleged arrest of Baloch political activists from Quetta by security forces.

Business activities in the districts came to a standstill, with most of the shopping and trading centres remaining close. Angry protesters torched NADRA’s office in Awaran district, completely destroying the office records. Police later registered an FIR against unidentified people for the arson. The BNF and the Baloch Students Organisation staged joint protest rallies in Khuzdar and Turbat. They protested outside the Turbat Press Club, demanding international human rights organisations take notice of the issue.

A BNF spokesman said security personnel arrested party activist Dr Nasim and two of his companions from Quetta a few days ago adding that the party or the families had no clue of their whereabouts so far.
