Pakistan: Enforced Disappearances now hits Punjab

| @indiablooms | 07 Jun 2023, 04:29 pm

The issue of forced disappearance, which was quite common in Balochistan, is slowly gaining pace in Punjab region of Pakistan, media reports said.

According to reports, several paramilitary forces and agencies go on a kidnapping spree in the region.

In just a couple of months since the Baloch community was protesting over the State-sponsored kidnapping of Mahal Baloch and atrocities on other Baloch women, Pakistani agencies are now implementing the same modus operandi on people in Punjab – Pakistan’s most prosperous and powerful region, reports Asian Lite International.

The latest abducted person is a lawyer who was identified as  activist Jibran Nasir.

He was reportedly picked up on Thursday.

According to his actor wife Mansha Pasha, nearly 15 armed men in plain clothes picked him up. Nasir’s abduction is one of the recent spate of high-profile abductions in the last few weeks beginning with the Pakistani Army’s crackdown on Imran Khan’s supporters in the wake of the audacious May 9 mass attacks on army properties, reports the news portal.

This follows the abduction of anchorperson Imran Riaz Khan who had been arrested from Sialkot and has remained missing since then, reports the news portal.
