QUETTA: Balochistan National Party (BNP) leader and former Chief Minister Balochistan Akhtar Mengal presented five recommendations for the province in court and said that pardons and packages would not solve the Balochistan crisis, Express News reported on Thursday.
Mengal made these remarks after the Balochistan security case which was underway in the Supreme Court’s Quetta Registry.
He recorded his comments in the court and said that the missing people should be recovered and their kidnappers should be brought to court.
Mengal also said that whoever was involved in target killings, be it of the Baloch or Hazaras, should be brought to justice.
The former chief minister said that those responsible for Bugti’s murder should be punished, while migrants should be provided settlements.
“It is for the first time in the history of Balochistan that we are being summoned to court as the accused,” said the former minister.
Mengal said that 450 mutilated bodies have been recovered, whose cause of death was no earthquake or tsunami.
Speaking on Dera Bugti, he said: “Dera Bugti is in the state that Bugti’s own wife and children cannot visit his grave.”
“Talks can be held only after these matters are resolved,” he said.
