QUETTA: Two leaders of the Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M) were allegedly kidnapped in two separate incidents in Balochistan on Friday. Members of the BNP-M Organising Committee Haji Hameedullah and Dad Shah were whisked away from the troubled Panjgur and Awaran districts, respectively. “The BNP-M strongly condemns the kidnappings and demands immediate and safe recovery of the leaders,” said the party’s information secretary, Agha Hassan, told The Express Tribune. “These could be enforced disappearances,” he alleged. According to the BNP-M, the party has lost more than 30 leaders and activists in targeted attacks.
