Quetta: Five more cases of enforced disappearances have been reported from Balochistan as atrocities continued in this Pakistani region.

In Panjgur, the zonal leader of the Baloch Student Organization Pajjar (BSO-Pajjar), Alam Baloch, was abducted two days ago. In total, 5 new cases of enforced disappearances have surfaced in Balochistan in the past two days,  reported the newspaper.

These persons are Ahsaab s/o Khalil, Zaman Jan s/o Sipah Khan, Majid s/o Sipah Khan and Abul Hassan s/o Rehmatullah, reported The Balochistan Post.

Locals reportedly visited security forces and urged them to ensure release of the people.
