On 8th March, early in the morning Pakistan’s security forces raided the house of Suleman Durra Baloch, president of BNM Kech region, in Ápsar Turbat Balochistan and willfully shot him dead on the spot.

The forces murdered Suleman and tortured his family members, including women and children, both mentally and physically, local sources say.

The family members were beaten harshly by the Security Forces.

Balochistan is going through the worst phase of Human Rights abuses.

Human Rights Council of Balochistan (Hakkpaan) is a non-profit and non-partisan human rights group based in Balochistan and Sweden. It collects reports from Balochistan, a region Pakistan government does not allow any media and HR group to visit and report. Human rights violations in Balochistan is not a new phenomenon, but it got its worst levels after the Military coup de tat of Pakistan in 1999. Thousands of Baloch have been reported missing, hundreds killed in fake encounters and so-called kill and dump policy of the military. HRCB collects the data from Balochistan itself, through its network of volunteers and supporters, organizes and reports them to the human rights mechanisms of the world.
