KARACHI: Body of Baloch journalist Abdul Razzak Baloch, who had been missing from Karachi since March 24, has now been identified by his family.
The body, found from Karachi's Mangopir area was mutilated. Police said a slip recovered from his shirt pocket had his name and address. His family initially denied the body was that of Razzak but later confirmed his identity.
Razzaq was last seen leaving his friend's house in Karachi’s Lyari neighborhood. He worked as a copy editor for the news desk of the Urdu-language pro-Baloch nationalist newspaper Daily Tawar. He was also a member of the Baloch National Movement.
It is unclear if Razzaq covered any sensitive stories for Daily Tawar. The paper is known for its coverage of the many conflicts between rival groups and the government.
Back in March Razzaq's family members accused Pakistani intelligence agencies of being responsible for the abduction, but did not elaborate.
