A locally famous Baloch singer has been ‘disappeared’ by Pakistani security forces after he was arrested in Gayab, Mand.
According to details received by The Balochistan Post, Lateef Baloch along with a companion Nadil s/o Ismael were arrested by Pakistani security forces on Wednesday.
The arrests come after Pakistani security forces were targeted in the area on Tuesday. Locals in Balochistan claim that security forces target and raid civilians areas whenever they are attacked by Baloch armed groups.
