Occupied Balochistan,QUETTA:Ten-year-old daughter of a missing person, Dr Din Muhammad Baloch, has appealed to United Nations, international human rights organisations and others to play their role for immediate and safe recovery of her father.

Addressing a news conference at a hunger strike camp set up by Voice for Baloch Missing Persons, an organisation striving for recovery of Baloch missing persons, she said her father was picked up by security agencies on June 28, 2009, from Civil Hospital Ornach in central Balochistan.

“He was the sole breadwinner of our family and we have been facing financial problems since my father is missing. It disturbed my family and we are living under uncertainty. The discovery of mutilated bodies off and on is adding to our miseries,” she said, adding that her family presented the eyewitnesses’ statement to the judicial commission, the Balochistan High Court and the Supreme Court to no avail.

“We also had a meeting with Justice Javed Iqbal in Supreme Court and he ordered the release of my father and three others: Jalil Reki, Sameer Rind and Ghaffar Langov, but all in vain. We received the bullet-riddled bodies of Ghaffar Langov, Sameer Rind and Jalil Reki, and my father is still in their custody. I am concerned about my father’s life. They will kill him,” she said.

Her family also registered a case against the Frontier Corps at Ornach Police Station, she told newsmen. She said that Frontier Corps and security agencies were busy in extra- judicial killings in custody, which was a violation of the fundamental human rights.
