BLF kills seven labourers in Kechh

At least seven non-local labourers were killed by armed men in Kechh district, 1,050kms southwest of Quetta, on Tuesday in an attack claimed by the Baloch Liberation Front.
According to reports, the labourers, who belonged to Waziristan, were working for a private construction company building the Turbat-Buleda Road. They were in their camp in Masken, around 120kms north of Turbat, when eight armed men surrounded the camp, lined up seven labourers and sprayed them with bullets. All seven men were killed on the spot. The armed men separated two local labourers and allowed them to go.
After the incident the Levies and personnel of the Frontier Corps Balochistan rushed to the area and took custody of the bodies. Confirming the incident, Kechh Deputy Commissioner Hafeez Hoath said the attackers were believed to be eight to 10 in number. He said the attackers set the road construction machinery and company’s vehicles on fire before escaping. Doda Baloch, a spokesman for the banned Baloch Liberation Front, called newspaper offices and claimed the responsibility for the attack. He said the BLA had time and again warned construction companies and their labourers not to be part of conspiracies against the Baloch people. Meanwhile, a complete shutter-down strike was observed in most parts of Balochistan to protest the killing of Sangat Sana Baloch, a leader of the Baloch Republican Party, whose bullet-ridden body was recovered along with that of another political activist on Monday. Two more decomposed bodies of Baloch missing persons were recovered in Lasbela on Tuesday.

    These are those Baloch "Freedom fighters" that the US is so concerned about. Its important to highlight the facts- that they're terrorists who're killing innocent non-Baloch…they're involved in ethnic cleansing and they're not victims. The army should crush them with all out force

      Absloutly right. and i am damn sure Chief Justice will not take any sou moto on this brutal act because it will not make any headlines in media. and where is now Mengals and Khawaja Asifs how portrays the army as Punjabi army and Baloch people as innocent. these terrorist have killed around 50 security personal in last month alone and now these innocent civilians but no politician/judge has even issued a statement condemning these barbaric acts. All these politicians and judges are suffering from ARMY/ISI Phobia and they are worst form of hypocrites.

    It is unfortunate that violence is now embedded in the society, but gradual change can now be observed, as many individuals who opted for violence as a means to achieve their objectives are discontinuing these measures.
