Pakistan, September 19: Pakistan's spy agencies and security forces continue targeting political activists who want an independent Balochistan. In August 2011, Pakistan's security forces twice raided the house of Former Balochistan chief minister Mir Humayun Marri. Backed by the police, they planted arms and ammunition at his farmhouse as a part of bigger plot to kill him. While addressing the media Marri said the raids were a clear message that the security forces and the establishment could kill or arrest anyone in Balochistan in broad daylight without any fear of being held accountable. Marri is the son-in-law of Nawab Akbar Bugti, the leader of the Bugti tribe killed by Pakistani security forces in 2006.
