Baloch students 'arrested by intelligence personnel'

QUETTA, Aug 13: Two more Baloch students were allegedly arrested by intelligence personnel dressed in police uniforms and civilian dress in Mustung on Saturday when they were travelling from Quetta to Khuzdar.

The arrested boys were identified as Amirul Mul and Imran Baloch. Baloch, 22, is a BA student at Quetta's Degree College and a member of the Baloch Student Organisation's Cental Committee, while Mul, 20, is an FSc student from Khuzdar.

"The lives of both boys are in danger. Twenty hours have passed and we are still clueless about their whereabouts," Manzoor Baloch, Mul's younger brother, said. He said the driver of the Kurdish Bus Service, on which both boys were travelling, had confirmed that plainclothes law enforcement officials had stopped the bus at Lake Pass around 11pm on Saturday night.

He said both boys were members of the Baloch Student's Organisation. They had been travelling for one hour when they were arrested, he added. "Neither of them has ever been wanted in any criminal charges. They are innocent students. They had never even received any threats. Therefore, we don't understand why they have been picked up," he said.

Meanwhile, women from the Baloch Panel continued their hunger strike in front of the Quetta Press Club for a 14th consecutive day. The women are protesting against the alleged disappearance of around 4,000 Baloch political workers and citizens at the hands of secret state agencies.

Carrying enlarged photographs of several missing persons, the women said they would continue their strike unless the government ensures the recovery of all the missing Baloch.

Earlier, the women had prevented a female provincial minister from entering their hunger camp, terming her an agent of the government. "The purpose of our strike is to gain the attention of national and international media and human rights organisations. The Balochistan government cannot meet our demands of recovering our people from the intelligence agencies as it is unable to do anything in this regard," Mehar Baloch, a camp organiser, said. She said government agencies had been constantly threatening the women by phone to shut down their camp, as it was tarnishing the image of the government and bringing shame to the country.
