Pak claims India `interfering` in Balochistan

Islamabad: Pakistan on Wednesday claimed that India
is "interfering" in its southwestern Balochistan province, a
charge New Delhi has repeatedly denied.

Making a statement in the Senate or upper house of
Parliament in response to points raised by lawmakers, Interior
Minister Rehman Malik said Pakistan has evidence that India is
"interfering" in Balochistan.
He did not give details about his charge, which has
already been dismissed by India.

Malik also claimed that Pakistan has identified terrorist
training camps established inside Afghanistan for interference
in Balochistan. This issue has formally been taken up with the
Afghan government, he said.

Some persons reported missing from Balochistan were
forcibly taken to these training camps in Afghanistan, he
alleged.

Though the Baloch Liberation Army said 6,000 people
were missing from Balochistan, this was later reduced to
1,133.
Balochistan government provided a list of 992 missing
persons, which included 600 without necessary particulars,
Malik said.

An advertisement was published in newspapers asking
people to provide details about missing persons and only 43
applications had been received by authorities so far, he said.
