The issue of missing persons is worsening on each passing day in the province of Balochistan, where a large number people have gone missing. According to the family members of the victims their loved ones were abducted by security officials and the cases of missing persons are under proceeding at the Supreme Court of Pakistan, yet no action has been taken against those who perpetrated. It is believed that in Blaochistan province, the figure of missing persons is more than rests of the provinces of Pakistan. The family members of the victims are striving for the safe recovery of their loved ones. Now it is utmost responsibility of the state authorities and its institutes to provide the justice these aggrieved families, and curtail the power of the agencies.
Furthermore, the law and order situation in the province is worsening on each passing day; it is the duty of the state machinery to maintain the law and order within the state, and take action against those who are involved in criminal activities. The culprits must be apprehended and produced before a Magistrate within 24 hours of the arrest. If the victim held culprits, must be punished according to the law. The family members of the victims must be given an access to their loved ones, no matter wherever they are detained.
In Balochistan, the family members of the victims are denied of the judicial rights. The families of the victims do not have any sort of access to their loved ones, even they do not know about the fate of their loved one, whether they are alive or dead.
The Chief Justice Supreme Court of Pakistan, Balochistan High Court and the Director General of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), are pleaded to recover missing persons of the province in the consideration of human rights.
