He said that the organization has presented incorrect figures of Baloch Missing Persons & victims of Kill and Dump policy of the occupying forces.

He said 35 people have been abducted by Pakistani forces within a week which include 10 Marri Baloch who were abducted by forces during a late night raid in Saryab area of Quetta. similiary 5 were abducted from Noshki & 15 were abducted during a military offensive in Dera Bugti.

He said that the accurate figure of Baloch Missing Persons is 14385 & more than 400 bullet riddled, tortured, mutilated corpses have been found so far.

He said the accurate figures can not be ascertained sitting in air-conditioned rooms, one has to visit homes of every victim to collect the original data. He condemned the report of HRCP and said that HRCP should not misinform the world by releasing such baseless reports.

    these numbers vary so much. from a ‘few hundred’ according to international and local HR groups to anywhere between 8-16000 according to nationalists etc

    what is actual number?
    how many of them are kept illegally?
    how many of them are innocent?
    how many of them are actually hiding out in Afghanistan and Gulf countries?

    We need to know!
