KARACHI: A Baloch leader expressed apprehensions on Wednesday that his son, who `disappeared’ in Karachi on Aug 30, might meet the same fate that other missing people have met.

Kachkol Ali, a former Leader of the Opposition in Balochistan Assembly, told Dawn on phone from Norway that his son, 21-year-old Nabeel Baloch, was taken away near his residence in Karachi’s Garden West area on Saturday.

He suspected that Nabeel might have beeen taken away by personnel of some security agency and apprehended that he might be eliminated.

The Baloch leader urged the authorities concerned to get his innocent son freed.
