QUETTA: For two families, the mystery of their missing beloved ended on Tuesday when the bodies of their relatives were found dumped in a deserted place in the Lasbela district of Balochistan.

According to the Balochistan Levies, some passers-by spotted the bodies and informed the Levies Thana.

The local administration and Balochistan Levies officials rushed to the spot and shifted the bodies to District Headquarters Hospital Uthal.

Local official Abdul Ghafoor Mundra said they found the National Identity Cards (NIC) along with the bodies and identified the deceased as Mohammad Murad Marri – resident of Kohlu and Dil Murad Marri – resident of Sibi.

The hospital sources revealed that the bodies have marks of torture on them and electric shocks might have caused their death.

According to Voice for Baloch Missing Person (VBMP), an organisation striving for the recovery of Baloch missing persons, the victims were kidnapped a few months ago from the Vindar area of Lasbela district.

The relatives had earlier lodged complaint with the Chief Justice of Supreme Court Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry regarding their missing relatives and recorded their statements on April 30, during the hearing of Supreme Court in Quetta.

    I just cannot believe something of this kind happening again and again since last decade and no one is ever caught of tried for such a henious crimes against humanity.

    My heart goes out to those brave souls whose lives were snatched and families left with huge burden of life long pain, anguish and suffering

    Those who are responsible for the abduction, torture, killing and dumping the bodies, are neither Muslims nor human beings becasue they refuse to give the last rites to the remains by giving a burial rather leaving bodies in remote areas to be eaten by wild animals.

    Is there any way to stop this carnage that is going on day in and day out? Could any one ask General Kayani to find the culprtis with the help of Pakistan army?

    @hamza khan:

    Are you sure what you are claiming?

    However the supreme court of Pakistan and other courts, based on some evidence or witness accounts, have been asking the agencies to produce those who have been abducted and still untracable and many have returned their homes. No one who has returned home has accused BLA for their abduction and torture. The media is not trying interviewing them to find the truch.

    My request to CJ Sahib, please do not order the production of abducted people anymore. The last two times you asked and their tortured bodies were found. Please decide the case soon or stop its hearing for decades just like Asghar Khan case. We cannot handle more bodies of dead Baloch. Recommend

    My advice to the relatives would be, Please do not waste the SC’s time. Can’t you see the court is busy with finding Who wrote a Memo amd Who did not write a letter.

    Unless you are living in denial fantasy, the agencies are the real abducting clan.

    The SC only ordered the agencies to return the missing persons. But they did not specify whether to bring them back dead or alive. So the agencies have heeded the court’s request and ‘returned’ the 2 missing persons.
