Activist demands thorough probe into Karima Baloch's death

London: Hakeem Baloch, President of Baloch National Movement UK Zone, has demanded a thorough investigation into the death of activist Karima Baloch in Canada.

He said Karima was a brave lady and could not commit suicide.

"She received many threat calls on her social media accounts, abusive messages, and comments that's something which shows the mentality of the enemy of the Baloch nation," Hakeem was quoted as saying by ANI. 

"Statements from her family and close friends have revealed that they don't believe, and the Baloch nation doesn't believe that she becomes a victim of an accident or it is an act of suicide because she was a brave lady, she was a brave heart lady, she was the hope for hundreds and thousands of Baloch," he said.
