According to Baloch’s friends and family, he was abducted by Pakistan security personnel on Friday at around 5 pm from Quetta.
In July 2019, Noor Khan Baloch was picked up by armed men claiming to be from security agencies. He remained missing for several months without any known charges before being freed.
The Baloch Students Organization has condemned Baloch’s arrest and has decided to run a campaign on Twitter #ReleaseNoorkhanBaloch to highlight his case with the hope that he returns safely.
Balochistan has witnessed a surge in cases of enforced disappearance as Baloch youth are being arrested and whisked away from across Balochistan regularly.
While the Baloch Human Rights Council (BHRC) expressing concern over the rising cases of enforced disappearance has said that sadly in the absence of international intervention in this matter, the practice of enforced disappearances by the security forces of Pakistan remains far from seeing an end.
