According to the report In the month of October, the unending selective genocide and massacre of Baloch people continues unabated. In fake encounters many victims of enforced disappearances were killed across Balochistan. Last month, in the area of Notal-Naseerabad, a victim of enforced disappearances was killed in a fake encounter. Similarly, in Kharan and Mastung 10 victims of enforced disappearances were killed in fake encounters by this so-called CTD.
The report states that when the relatives of the missing persons staged a sit-in in front of the Chief Minister’s House and the Governor’s House against the Ziarat incident, a high-level government delegation led by the Pakistani Interior Minister came and negotiated with the relatives and convinced them that no one would be killed in fake encounters, but despite their promises the detainees were targeted in fake encounters.
