There is no let up in atrocities against the common man in Pakistan. Recently, in Balochistan's Khuzdar and Kech districts, five more bullet-riddled dead bodies of Baloch missing persons were recovered. They were identified as Muhammad Ayub, Muhammad Hafiz and Murtaza Zehri who had been kidnapped a few days ago from Bhuzdar area. According to reports they were first tortured and then shot in the head. The relatives of all five victims accused government agencies and security forces for the brutal killings. Continuing cases of human rights violations in Balochistan and the rest of Pakistan places a question mark on the veracity of reports by the Pakistan Human Rights Commission (PHRC). Political activists and nationalists say that the 2010 human rights report by the PHRC does not give a correct picture of human rights violations in Pakistan.
