He said that thousands of Baloch men and women were in torture cells which was clear violation of human rights. 'Pakistani authorities are using delaying tactics so that we should kill him or he may die in our captivity because of illness, he said ,adding, that by using delaying tactics Pak authorities wanted to paint us as terrorists. He said that they have no trust in Pak authorities and expected the UN and other humanitarian organisations would take practical steps for the recovery of thousands of missing Baloch men and women.
