Writing about the same HRW report, The Independent,
includes the statement of a Baloch Republican Party member, Bashir Azeem, who was abducted and tortured to the extreme by the security forces. The HRW report tells that the security forces also ‘disappear’ those who become an ‘annoyance’. Last month, an interview on npr
also recorded similar narratives of Baloch activists abducted and tortured by the state security.
