QUETTA: The Baloch National Movement (BNM) has condemned the murder of Ramzan Baloch and Ghafoor Baloch and dumping of their mutilated bodies in Karachi and appealed to the United Nations and international organisations to take notice of human rights violation being committed allegedly by security forces in Balochistan.

The BNM activists carrying placards and banners held a demonstration outside the press club on Wednesday.

Speaking at the rally, BNM leaders Sami Baloch and Maieh Baloch asked the UN and international human rights organisations to raise their voice over dumping of bullet-riddled bodies, extra-judicial killings, arrests of political workers and disappearance of Baloch youths.

They said thousands of people, including party leaders Dr Din Mohammad Baloch and Mir Sadiq Jamaldani, were missing and accused intelligence agencies of their involvement in the disappearances.
