Separatist literature, maps recovered by FC in Turbat raid


A large quantity of anti-Pakistan literature as well as maps of a separate Balochistan were recovered during a raid of Attashad Degree College in Turbat district of Balochistan, Express News reported on Monday.

A Baloch student had reportedly taken over a hostel in the college and a Frontier Corps (FC) spokesperson claims he was brainwashing students to conduct acts of terrorism in the country.
The recovered material included separatist leaflets, banners and posters. The books include Nehru and Gandhi’s biographies as well as books about Baloch separation. The books were printed in Karachi and neighbouring countries.
The Frontier Corps had conducted the raid after receiving a tip about the operation. No arrests were made and the student in question fled before the FC arrived.
The FC handed the investigation into the hostel over to the police and more raids will be conducted in the area.
Child tortured
On January 12, the tortured and bullet-riddled body of a 10-year-old was found in Turbat. The victim’s elder brother is a campaigner for the Baloch separatist movement, according to sources.
A Baloch Student Organisation Azad spokesperson accused security agencies of being behind the incident. Security agencies have denied charges of involvement in any illegal detention or dumping of bodies.
