Four Pakhtuns from Balochistan were mysteriously kiled by Karachi police on January 31st
The killing of the four Pakhtoons from Balochistan had led to a wave of anger in that province. “You cannot kill anyone without any evidence or reason, the four persons were innocent,” Mohammad Asad a student from Quetta told The News. Asad said that after seeing what the Karachi Police did, “Me and my family will think twice before coming to Karachi for a leisure trip.”
The four men, Waheed Ullah, Zain Uddin, Ibrahim and Tahir Ullah, belonged to a respectable Achakzai family of Qilla Abdullah and were in the business of transport vehicles.
After hearing of the killings, a strike was observed in many parts of Balochistan. People from different parts came to Quetta and hundreds gathered on Zargoon Road, where the Governor House is located. Most persons condemned the Karachi Police and also said that this was part of a larger scheme to drive Pakhtoons out of the city.
