Over 30 training camps in Afghanistan fuelling Balochistan unrest: IG FC
QUETTA: Around 121 insurgent training camps were operating in Balochistan and 30 in Afghanistan, which are contributing to unrest in the province, Inspector-General (IG) Frontier Corps (FC) Major General Ubaidullah Khan told the media on Saturday.
Addressing a press conference in Quetta, Khan claimed that the camps are being operated by Harbiyar Marri, Brahamdag Bugti, Allah Nazar and Javed Mengal, and are running concerted campaigns to defame state institutions.
Brahamdagh Bugti is the leader of Balochistan Republican Party (BRP) and Harbiyar Marri of Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) – both are accused of fueling insurgency in the violence plagued province.
Khan added that if the government tries its hard, these camps can be eliminated.
The FC and other security agencies though too have been blamed for some of the violence in the province. The IG was summoned by the Supreme Court recently to explain the role of FC in the case of missing persons.
