BMM Labour Wing leaders said, “Poor labourers hailing from Punjab are being murdered in numerous parts of Balochistan by terrorist outfits. Such incidents deserve to be condemned,”

According to details, unidentified armed men killed six labors in Lijjay mountainous area of Kharan city on May 4 while they were busy in installation of a telecommunication tower.

BMM Labour Wing President Sultan Muhammad said, “Poor labourers from Punjab often visit Balochistan in search of better job opportunities, but are being brutally murdered by terrorists.”
