QUETTA: At least 10 labourers working on the Dera Bugti-Sui road were abducted by a group of armed men near Sui during the early hours of Thursday.

The District Police Officer Dera Bugti confirmed the kidnapping, adding that police and security forces have mounted a manhunt in the area for the safe recovery of the labourers.

The labourers were sitting in tents pitched beside the road under construction near Sui when a group of armed men abducted ten of them at gun point.

“A few labourers were left behind as they were sitting inside another tent,” official sources said.

There were eight Sindhi-speaking labourers belonging to Sadiqabad, one from Quetta and one local Bugti tribesman.

The security forces and police initiated a search operation in the area on Thursday morning but were clueless about the whereabouts of the kidnapped people.

Local sources, however, put the figure to 13. No group has so far claimed responsibility for the kidnapping.

ANON | 9 years ago | Reply @mir baloch: For people like you, every Pakistani is a Punjabi. These unfortunate men were Sindhis are Balochs if you care to read the news. I wish media has made it a big news. Media only highlights missing Balochs and forget these people who go missing in exchange for those missing Balochs. If someone goes against the state, state agencies respond like that. This is not restricted to Baluchistan. Same thing happens in other provinces though at a lower scale. Coming back to your figure of thousands, can you prove your allegations? People who have protested and are shown on media are hardly in hundred figure and you are claiming thousands of people are missing. Your second allegation is that women are raped? Can you give examples?
Mir Chakar Mazari | 9 years ago | Reply BLA is only making it worse for us Balochs. Sadiqabad is in Rahimyar Khan where Seraiki and sindhi speakers reside. what ever the case, BLA terrorists are killing innocent Punjabis, seraikis and now sindhis. Shame for us Balochs. I am ashamed.
