The family of Anees Baloch, a computer science graduate from Bahauddin Zakariya University in Multan, went missing from their hometown on June 4.

Anees' family had staged a protest two days after the Baloch man's abduction, but the administration gave them false assurances. However, the kidnapped Baloch man is still not traceable.

Another sit-in was organised by family members of Nazir Ahmad Baloch near Khuzdar for the safe release of the abducted persons.

Earlier, the attack on the sit-in in Pakistan's Chaman region was condemned by the Baloch People's Congress, a political organisation dedicated to advocating for Baloch rights.

Through a statement on X, BPC General Secretary Siddiqui Azad Baloch condemned the action of Pakistan Punjabi Army against peaceful protesters in Balochistan.

“The brutality unleashed by Pakistan Punjabi Army on the peaceful protest and sit-in of people for their rights in Chaman area of ​​Balochistan is extremely worrying and condemnable,” the statement said.

“For the past several months, people in Chaman have been protesting peacefully for their social and economic rights and their demands have fallen on deaf ears. Unfortunately, this peaceful protest is being met with persistent violence by state forces,” the statement said.

Expressing concern over the ongoing state repression on the people of Balochistan, the BPC called upon international human rights organisations to pay immediate attention to the brutality being committed by the state armed forces.

The statement said, “The people of Balochistan are constantly facing government repression, but despite all this repression, they are fighting for their rights, which is commendable. I appeal to international human rights organizations to take immediate cognizance of the brutality of government armed forces on the public sit-in in Chaman, Balochistan and request the humanitarian circles of the world to raise their voice against this repression on every platform.”

Violent protests and clashes between protesters and police continued for the third consecutive day on Friday in the Balochistan border town of Chaman. Several people have been injured in the clashes. The protests in Chaman are against the strict visa policies of the Pakistan government on the Afghan border.
