The committee, sharing a post on X, highlighted the grim reality faced by residents of Balochistan, citing reports of over 90 cases recorded in May 2024 alone.

“Reports indicate that more than 90 people were subjected to enforced disappearances in May alone, and the number is rising, causing growing concern among human rights organisations,” it said.

The BYC highlighted specific cases, including the abduction of Miran Sawali from Pasani, who was produced before a local court after being illegally detained by security forces.

In addition, the Committee noted the forcible abduction of Shaid and Saifullah from Taunsa Sharif and Dad Shah from Bulada.

The committee also drew attention to the suffering of the family of Farooq Baloch, whose grief has led to protests blocking the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) for the last two days.

He called on human rights groups to take proactive action and stressed the need not to sit idly by in such serious situations.

The Baloch Yakjehti Committee (BYC) is an organization dedicated to addressing issues faced by the Baloch community in Balochistan.

Through social media platforms such as X, BYC works through advocacy and awareness-raising to shed light on human rights violations in the region.

The problem of enforced disappearances has long been a concern in Balochistan, where security forces detain people without due process and often without verification of their detention.
