Doda Ellahi and Ghamshad Baloch – missing Baloch students of Karachi University who were allegedly whisked away from their house earlier this month, returned home ‘safely’ on Tuesday.

The students belonging to Kech district of Balochistan went missing on June 7 and returned to their home in Karachi’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal area earlier in the day amid widespread outcry over their alleged abduction.

The siblings of Doda also confirmed in a tweet that their brother has been released “safely”.

Development comes a day after the Karachi police manhandled and arrested 28 protesters, including women, who were staging a sit-in outside the Sindh Assembly against the alleged abduction of the two missing students.

Law enforcement’s heavy-handed approach to seemingly peaceful protesters sparked outrage on social media with people demanding action against the police officials.

Meanwhile, Climate Minister Sherry Rehman in a tweet has said that inquiry committee is formed by the Sindh government to probe “into the disproportionate and unseemly use of force against women protesters in Karachi outside the Press Club”.

Reacting to the arrest and release of the Baloch protesters, Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon took to Twitter saying, “It’s requested for everyone that kindly avoid violation of law so that law in orders may be ensured.”
