QUETTA  : Balochistan Home Minister Mir Ziaullah Langove has said that a total of 28 people have returned home since Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani assured the Voice for Baloch Missing Persons (VBMP) to make all-out efforts for the recovery of those who had disappeared for long.

Mr Langove while talking to the families of missing persons Maher, Gul Marri and Zafrullah  at his office on Wednesday, said that 28 people missing since long had returned to their homes with the efforts of the government, proving its commitment.

VBMP chairman Nasar­ullah Baloch, vice chairman Mama Qadeer Baloch and others in a meeting with Chief Minister Jam Kamal and Home Minister Zia Langove last month had discussed the issue of missing persons. The VBMP leaders had then announced closing their protest camp and given the government two months for the recovery of the missing people.

The home minister said while provincial government was utilizing all its efforts for the recovery of missing people, the VBMP had handed over a list of 110 missing persons.

“I accepted the portfolio of home minister to resolve the issue of missing persons and provide relief to people of Balochistan,” Langove said.

He assured the family members of Maher, Gul Marri and Zafarullah that more missing people would return soon.

He reiterated that Jam-led coalition government was practically showing its performance as it had taken important decisions which were also being implemented.
