In a statement, the father of a missing Baloch student, Farooq Ahmed, denied reports of his son’s recovery. He said that his son was forcibly abducted from the Air University in Rawalpindi on May 11, 2022. After more than one and a half years, there is still no news of his whereabouts.

He said that on November 29, 2023, the Attorney General filed a report in court of the recovery of 22 students, including Farooq Ahmed, who had returned home. This is completely false, he said. He is still missing.

He appealed to the authorities to recover his son, if he is in any institution, and hand him over to him safely and unharmed. If he has committed any crime, he should be presented in court. The mother of Farooq is in a lot of pain.

The father of Farooq Ahmed, Noor Bakhsh, said that his son was a bright student and had no involvement in any political activity. He said that he was abducted by unknown men in plain clothes. He has been searching for his son for over a year and a half, but has not been able to find him.

The father of Farooq Ahmed is not the only one who has been affected by the forced disappearances in Pakistan. There are thousands of families who have been left without their loved ones. The case of Farooq Ahmed is a reminder of the urgency of the issue of forced disappearances in Pakistan. Since 27 March 1948, the Pakistan Army has been oppressing Baloch through daily home raids, disappearances, staged encounters, target killings, torture, humiliation at checkpoints, and kidnappings for ransom. The Pakistan Army is targeting and monitoring Baloch people, and anyone who has the potential to raise questions is either killed or abducted.
