Justice for Bramsh


S M Hali
On May 26, three armed robbers stormed into a house in Dannuk with the intention of carrying out a
robbery. In the ensuing assault, four year old Bramsh became orphaned. Her mother Malik Naaz was
ruthlessly martyred in front of her little daughter for resisting while the little girl was injured badly.
According to Turbat Police press release one of the thief identified as Altaf Mazar from Absor Turbat was
caught on the spot. Later on, two other thieves were also arrested. They are identified as Abdul Basit s/o

Faiz Panjgyr resident of Turbat and Saif Ullah Munir Ahmed from Shahrak. Police have also recovered a
pistol and a bike from Altaf Mazar. Other items recovered include a Toyota Corolla car and robbed items
such as laptops, watches, and mobile phones. Some Baloch social media activist are also pointing fingers
at Zahoor Buledi – the Minister for Finance at Balochistan provincial government to be having
connections with the robbers’ gang. Little Bramsh was moved to Karachi for treatment. While there
have been widespread protest rallies demanding justice for Bramsh, some sub-nationalists in
Balochistan are propagating that Bramsh was assaulted by State sponsored proxies in the region. PTM,
leftists were also part of the trend, where an issue of murder was directly interconnected with the
establishment. The protesters demand the arrest of Sameer Sabzal the head of the death squad. In the
upcoming days more protest rallies are scheduled in Punjgur as well as Karachi. Anti-state elements in
Balochistan are linking separatism to grievances in erstwhile FATA to draw the sympathies of
international resistance movements for propagation of their political agenda.
