Shutter Down Strike Observed Across Balochistan Against Baloch Leader’s Killing
BALOCHISTAN: The National Party and its student wing, the Baloch Students Organization (Pajjar) organized protest rallies and called for shutter down strikes across Balochistan on Tuesday to condemn the killing of Yaqoob Baloch, the president of NP’s Karachi chapter.
All businesses remained shut while attended at educational institutions and government offices was recorded as very thin.
The National Party has urged the Sindh government to investigate the murder of its key leader and bring the murderers to justice. The NP, which calls itself as Balochistan’s only middle-class political party, says Mr. Balochs’s killing was deliberate in an effort to frighten the Baloch population in Karachi while some other leaders of the party blamed ‘an ethnic party’ alluding to the Muthidad Quomia Party for the murder.
