Muhammad Hayat Baloch was allegedly killed by enraged personnel of the Frontier Corps on Thursday after a convoy of the security forces was targeted with an IED nearby. Hayat, who was a student of Karachi University, was initially punched and kicked and then shot dead while his sister and mother pleaded for mercy.
The family of the victim then lodged a First Information Report (FIR) with the Turbat police. The parents of Hayat Baloch have informed the cops that they can identify the murderer of their son. According to SSP (Turbat), an internal investigation by the Frontier Corps found that the accused personnel ‘reacted in haste’ and handed him over to the police for further probe into the extra-judicial killing of the 25-year-old student.
