According to our sources in Balochistan Home and Tribal Affairs Department, more than 50 bodies were recovered in Quetta and other towns of Balochistan during this year.
However, Baloch nationalists contradict the official figure and claim that the number of bodies was more than what was being quoted by the home department.
Chief Minister Balochistan Dr Malik Baloch has repeatedly stated that recovery of missing persons and an end to recovery of bodies was one of his government's top priorities.
