3 Killed In Firing By Pak Forces In Balochistan


Islamabad: Three civilians have been allegedly killed by indiscriminate firing by Pakistan forces in Balochistan’s Nasirabad district, Times Now reported on Monday citing sources.

Earlier today, the Baloch Republican Party (BRP) alleged that bombarding by choppers had killed one Baloch civilian – Lalu Bugti. Several others had been abducted, it added.

“Pakistani forces launched military operations in Chattar, Sherani, Hoti, and adjacent areas of Nasirabad…Helicopters have indiscriminately bombarded the area, killing an innocent Baloch civilian,” the party’s spokesperson Sher Mohammed Bugti was quoted as saying by ANI.

Pakistan forces had also “conduct(ed) military operations in (the) Goburd area of Mand, Balochistan, and abducted many Baloch people,” he said.

The BRP, which is currently banned in Pakistan, also said in a press release that Pakistan had been conducting military operations in Dilband and Nagahi areas of Kalat for three days.

In Kalat, Pakistan forces abducted “an innocent Baloch civilian” – Mubarak Bugti – and hanged him upside down from a tree for a whole night, before taking him into custody along with his family, the BRP said.

“Two dead bodies were found in Nagahi area, but the whereabouts of the abductees, including women and children, remains undisclosed,” it added.
