After remains were discovered in the Barkhan well, protests in Quetta continued for a second consecutive day.

After the discovery of a lady and her two sons’ burnt and bullet-riddled remains in a well close to Barkhan on Wednesday, Marri tribesmen in Balochistan’s Quetta maintained their sit-in outside the Red Zone for a second day in a row.

Marri, who once worked as a security guard for a provincial minister, claimed that his wife and sons were being held in the private jail of Sardar Abdul Rehman Khetran, the Balochistan Minister for Communication and Works. He also claimed that five additional members of his family, including his daughter, who is 13 years old, were still being held there.

He identified them as his wife Granaz, age 40, and sons Muhammad Anwar, age 22, and Abdul Qadir, age 4, who were held in a private jail in Haji Kot for the previous four years (15).

The issue started when the remains, believed to be those of Khan Muhammad Marri’s wife and two sons, were discovered late on Monday night.

On social media and even in the Balochistan Assembly, the matter has caused outrage. The police then conducted a search of Khetran’s home. Yet no arrests were indicated.

Imran Khan condemned it on Twitter and wants action in response to the murders and imprisonment of Barkhan

According to the former prime minister, the country was ruled by the jungle’s laws.
Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, has sharply denounced the murder of a Baloch lady and her two children as well as the illegal detention of others, and he has called for swift action against those guilty.
