In a positive development, three individuals who had been subjected to enforced disappearance in different areas of Pak-occupied-Balochistan have been recovered. The recovered persons belong to Mach, Kech, and Mastung districts.

Gul Zaman Kurd, who had been forcibly disappeared by Pak Army from Bolan, Mach, has been recovered and has returned to his home. Gul Zaman was forcibly disappeared in March of this year. It is worth noting that his brother, Shair Zaman Kurd, was forcibly disappeared on February 12, 2011, but his mutilated body was later found in Quetta in March. Shair fell victim to the Pak Army’s brutal kill and dump policy.

Meanwhile, Shah Jahan, son of Mullah Noor Allah, who had been forcibly disappeared from Bolida, Kech, has also been recovered. Pak Army had launched an operation in the Gali area of Bolida and forcibly disappeared Shah Jahan along with his brother Sadiq from their home.

In protest against the incident, the relatives staged a sit-in in front of the Pak forces’ camp, along with local residents. However, last night, death squad personnel threatened to kill the protesters in an attempt to sabotage the demonstration.

Additionally, Abdul Razaq, son of Abdul Rasheed Bangalzai, who had been forcibly disappeared from Mastung, has been recovered. He was forcibly disappeared on November 7, 2020, from Shangi Road, Mastung. Abdul was released in Nushki, and his close sources have confirmed his recovery.

The recovery of these individuals has brought relief to their families and renewed hopes for the safe return of other forcibly disappeared persons in Pak-occupied-Balochistan. However, concerns remain about the widespread practice of enforced disappearances and the lack of accountability for the Army.
