Ripples Of Terror: Balochistan Rocked By Another Dead Leader’s Body, Blasts
As the flames leapt higher, more bodies were discovered and explosions continued to claim innocent lives.
The inferno in Balochistan intensified on Monday. As the flames leapt higher, more bodies were discovered and explosions continued to claim innocent lives.
The day began with the discovery of a body dumped near Turbat – mutilated and shot 30 times in the head and chest.
The body was of Baloch Republican Party (BRP) leader Sangat Sana – missing since December 8, 2008. Sangat had been whisked away from the Kolpur area in Bolan.
More horrors would follow.
A remote-controlled explosion on a motorcycle ripped through a security checkpoint in Dera Murad Jamali later in the day. Security personnel escaped with their lives, but two children were killed.
Security personnel, however, would not escape another attack – this time near Chattar in Nasirabad district. Two personnel of the Balochistan Constabulary (BC) were killed and two others sustained injuries when a group of armed men ambushed a check post.
Later, almost as if to even things out, yet another ‘missing’ person’s body was found near Mand.
Official sources said that Sana’s body was found near Murgab by some passers-by, who informed the nearby Levies station. The body was shifted to the Turbat District Headquarters Hospital, where locals identified the deceased.
“The victim received over 30 bullets on his chest and hands,” an official of the Turbat police revealed.
Balochistan Levies said they have launched an investigation into the incident. But clearly Sana’s family don’t buy into it. Sana’s father has joined the hunger strike underway outside the Karachi Press Club.
