QUETTA – Journalist Ali Raza Rind, on Fourth Schedule for nearly 20 months, has finally been cleared by the Balochistan government.
“My name was put on fourth schedule over allegations I was affiliated with the banned Baloch Liberation Army,” Rind told JournalismPakistan.com Friday.
Rind, who is based in Dalbadin, denied the allegations all along.
In June, the District Intelligence Coordination Committee, Chagai recommended his name be taken off. The home secretary finally approved the recommendation last week.
The Fourth Schedule is a section of the Anti-Terrorism Act under which someone who is suspected of terrorism is kept under observation. It is mandatory for him to register his attendance with the local police regularly.
Rind had said his name was put on the Fourth Schedule because local politicians and bureaucracy wanted to exact revenge as he refused to accept dictations from them.
