For the third day in a row, a protest sit-in at the gate of the Balochistan Assembly has been taking place to demand the arrest of those accused in the Kachhi killings.
They were led by Sardar Yar Muhammad Rind, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) in the Balochistan Assembly, who was calling for the arrest of the accused in November killings of three people in Balanari, Kachhi district, who had been mentioned in the protest.
The protesters spent the night on Quetta’s Zarghon road, where they were subjected to bitter cold.
In the FIR, three youth from the Awan clan were murdered, and protesters called for the arrest of eight suspects, including former provincial minister Asim Kurd Gello, who were mentioned in the FIR.
Four months ago, three PTI workers were killed and two others were injured in Kachhi district as a result of a land dispute, according to Yar Muhammad Rind, who spoke to the media earlier.
He had informed the administration that the accused in the case, who had been nominated by the relatives of the victims, would be arrested within 48 hours if they did not do so. It is believed that the protest leaders will announce their next plan of action this evening, following the conclusion of the ultimatum period.
Sardar Rind is due to meet with Mir Zia Langove, the provincial adviser for home affairs, later today, according to reliable sources. The two will likely address the demands of the protesters.
