Outrage grew in Balochistan on Thursday over the shocking discovery of human remains in two gunny sacks near a seasonal river in the troubled Panjgur district a day earlier, spilling into a complete transport and business strike in different parts of the province.
The bodies were found on Wednesday near Rakshaan Nadi in the province’s western Panjgur district when some passersby spotted the sacks and informed the police. Nationalist party workers believe the remains belong to Baloch political workers.
Business and trade activities in Panjgur, Gwadar, Kech, Wadh, Kharan and other townships of Balochistan came to a standstill. Strict security measures were in place to thwart the possibility of any untoward incident.
The strike was called by the Baloch Warna Movement and Baloch National Front against the recovery of the dead in Khuzdar, Panjgur, Awaran and Kech districts. Activists of nationalist parties claim that three people were kidnapped and killed in illegal detention in Wadh area of Khuzdar.
