QUETTA, May 10: Jamhoori Watan Party (Bramdagh) leader Nawabzada Jamil Akbar Bugti has claimed that four Bugti tribesmen were killed and several others injured in a fresh military operation in different areas of Dera Bugti on Saturday.
In a statement issued here, he alleged that security forces targeted innocent people and humiliated women during the operation. The military actions negated the government’s claim that it had stopped the military operation.
Mr Jamil said that on the one hand, the government was giving the impression that the reconciliation was under way, but on the other, security forces launched a fresh operation on Saturday in which four people were killed and many others suffered injuries.
Condemning the operation, the JWP leader said that the excesses could not force the Baloch to give up their “just struggle against usurpers”.
He said that the JWP and other Baloch political parties would not abandon the struggle for their national rights, adding that hundreds of Balochs, including Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti and Nawabzada Balaach Marri, had sacrificed their lives for the rights of the oppressed.
Mr Jamil reiterated that his party would not hold talks with the government until the military operation stopped, troops were sent back to barracks, displaced people were rehabilitated, missing persons were traced, the cantonment in Sui was dismantled and political workers released.
