While it is unclear about when did the incident happen, as per news agency ANI, Baloch Republican Party and World Baloch Organisation organised a protest outside Lords in London on Sunday where the India vs South Africa World Cup match took place.
The protests were raised to highlight the pathetic human rights condition in Pakistan. Protestors distributed leaflets outside the stadium ahead of the clash between Pakistan and South Africa, to raise awareness about enforced disappearances of Baloch and other ethnic/religious minorities in Pakistan.
Roadside billboards appeared around the city of London with slogans "Help end enforced disappearances in Pakistan" drawing the world's attention towards the grave issue.
According to the Commission of Inquiry on Enforced Disappearances, an entity established by the Pakistani government, 5,000 cases of enforced disappearances have been registered since 2014.
Pakistan's establishment has been long criticized over its practice of enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings by International bodies and local human rights organisations that dare to speak out on the issue.
