QUETTA, Oct 5: A girl from Turbat has appealed to the United Nations, European Union and international human rights organisations to help her family trace her father.

The girl told a press conference on Friday that on June 20 her father Munshi Mohammed Bakhsh Baloch was travelling on a bus when the Frontier Corps personnel allegedly took him away.

A kidnapping case was registered at the Turbat police station, she said, adding the family had decided to seek international help after failing to have justice from national institutions, including the Supreme Court.

Seeking his immediate release, she wondered why her father was being punished when he had not committed any crime.

Can Dawn shed some light on why people get picked up? These, if true, cannot be just random acts - valid or invalid, there has to be some reason. It makes no sense for anyone to pick up individuals, again, assuming it is true, that were innocent and leave the ones that commit crimes or work against the state and its institutions.
