In addition to the other targeted mass killings and politically motivated murders, the suspected King of the gang warfare in Lyari, Uzair Jan Baloch passed on details about Pakistan Army facility to Iranian police. Such all come to light on Monday’s night when the government releases information on the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) following much uncertainty and lawsuits, on the three vast cases — Uzair Baloch, Baldia fire factories and former chairman of Nisar Morai Fishermen Cooperative Society.
The three JIT reports were reported on the Sindh home department website and received various political party responses. Yet the Federal Security Minister, Ali Haider Zaidi, who ruled by the PTI leadership and took Sindh to court three years ago to make the results of the JIT public, the reports were perhaps most expected, as some of his tweets have shown.
In February 2016, the six-man JIT, set up by the government of Sindh to interrogate Baloch, made up of security agency members, declared him unanimously a “demon” — guilty of a suspected crime, finding that Baloch was engaged in multiple murder and murdering his rivals and innocent civilians, including racial and “religious” parties.
The paper, examined by Dawn.co.f, of the Chief of the Prohibition of the Peoples Amn Committee (PAC), stated that “The defendant admitted to his illegal activity before JIT and related all of his conduct on the grounds of actual criminal acts.” He martyred several soldiers, Rangers and police stations. Baloch eventually “confessed,” according to the paper, to kill eight people for racial and political purposes and gang rivalry. It turned out that in 2010, in the light of being “sympathizers” of the political group, Baloch, now 42, told researchers that he and his accomplice murdered 11 Shershah garbage marketers. In fact, with the aid of police officers in retaliation for the murder of his brother, he admitted that he abducted and brutally killed his rival gang boss, Arshad Pappu and two others.
The JIT said that, apart from the murders, Baloch was involved in the kidnapping, stealing of property, China’s cuts and the drug trade. Another allegation in the report addressed the suspected espionage activities of Baloch. In the late 1980s, Baloch announced that, with the aid of his father, a dual citizen of Pakistani Iraq, he obtained a falsified birth certificate from Iran and managed in 2006 to acquire his Iranian identity and passport.
While Baloch was living with a relative in the Iranian port town of Tchabahar in 2014, one of Baloch and Iranian intelligence officers decided to schedule a meeting. A meeting with an intelligence officer was scheduled, at which Baloc “was asked not only the general security situation in the region but also to provide information on officers of the army […],” the study said. The JIT wrote in its report that “the perpetrator is engaging in espionage activities by gathering classified information / sketches on military bases and officials of foreign agents (Iranian security officers), which is a violation of the Official Secrets Act of 1923.”
It has also emerged that Baloch has a variety of assets — controlled with black money — in Pakistan and Dubai and washed vast quantities by himself. “He made Lyari his state and put the entire city in a state of fear” under the PAC, the JIT states as it took illicit guns and splashing transactions. The investigative team recommended taking note of his allegations and challenges of his reported lawsuits in criminal proceedings against Baloch. He said that all of the crimes that he acknowledged were apparent before the National Justice Office, the Federal Investigation Agencies and the Anti-Encroachment Cell had to be handed over for legal prosecution to those authorities. Baloch and other suspects.
The JIT reported that Baloch was “strongly advised” for his espionage operations under the Pakistan Army Act. Last month, officials in Karachi’s jail reported to the Anti-terror court that Baloch was accused of espionage for foreign countries by a military court of 12 years’ stringent prison this year. The analysis revealed that there were some other offences that Baloch was convicted of “initial investigation” as new information emerged. On Friday, the Government of Sindh declared that the three JIT reports would be issued on the weekend, but that Minister Zaidi has been asked to make a comment in documents that might reveal top PPP members engaged in illegal activities.
Just last week the Sindh High Court was informed that it had appealed the order of the Sindh Supreme Court to file the 3 JIT papers. This had happened in reply to Zaidi ‘s request to publish all three reports. He lodged an appeal before the High Court in 2017, claiming that the JIT reports included troubling revelations of politicians’ involvement in crimes such as killings and extortion.
