New York:  Human Rights Watch executive director Kenneth Roth has demanded for a thorough investigation into the death of Baloch activist Karima Baloch.

"A thorough investigation is needed as Karima Baloch becomes the second Pakistani dissident from Balochistan living in exile to be found dead this year. Her body is discovered in Toronto. Pakistani authorities had followed and threatened her in Balochistan," he tweeted.

Renowned activist Karima Baloch, who was vocal about Pakistan Army and government atrocities in Balochistan, has been found dead in Canada's Toronto city.

She was a refugee in Canada.

Karima Baloch, a Canadian refugee named by the BBC as one of the world’s 100 most “inspirational and influential” women in 2016 was last seen on Sunday, December 20, 2020, at approximately 3 p.m, reports The Balochistan Post.

She had gone missing before that.
