Shutter down and Black Day being observed in Baluchistan on the fourth death anniversary of Nawab Akbar Bugti

Instead of a slow death in bed, I'd rather death come to me while I'm fighting for a purpose."-- Shaheed Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti

Occupied Baluchistan: A shutter down strike is being observed in Quetta and several other parts of Balochistan on Thursday (Today) on the occasion of the fourth death anniversary of Baloch nationalist leader Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti

The strike call was given by the Baluch Republican Party. All the Baluch political and students Organisation had announced to support the strike call by BRP, including Baluchistan National Front, Baluchistan National Party, Jamhori Watan party, Baluch Student Organisations and others.

All major shopping centres, schools and office in Quetta and across Baluchistan are closed, with contingents of police, Baluchistan Constabulary, Frontier Core and Anti Terrorist Force deployed throughout the city.

A complete shutter-down strike and Black Day is also being observed in other areas of Baluchistan such as Noshki, Dalbadin, Mastung, Qalat, Pisni, Sibi, Dera Bugti, Kohlu Mach, Khuzdar, Naal, Gawader, Turbat, Khara and Baluch populated areas in Sindh and Karachi.

Meanwhile BBC Urdu has reported that five people have been killed and 12 wounded in attacks on government forces and non-Baluch settlers. PPP –Sherpao’s leader Ghulam Mostaga Khorasani has been shot dead in Surab bazaar, two people have been killed in Dera Bugti in a landmine blast, one person died in a hand grenade attack in Panjgur and two Pakistani security forces have been injured in yet another hand grenade attack in Gawader.

Independent sources reported that a Pakistani security forces vehicle was destroyed in a grenade attack in the industrial town of Hub, and a convoy of the occupying forces have been attacked in Rahkni areas of Baluchistan. Presumably, several security personnel were killed and injured in these attacks but no casualties have been reported on official levels so far.
