Aslam Achou alias Merick Baloch belonged to Afghanistan. He came to Balochistan in 1992, joined BLA and became its very important commander. He worked in the mineral department as a clerk because he possessed a Pakistani National Identity Card.
“Aslam alias Merick Baloch was also in charge of several camps set up in the area by his organisation,” the spokesman said, adding that he had links with the Afghan intelligence agency. His family was living in Afghanistan, he added.
He was involved in killing hundreds of people, including high-profile security and other officials.
The government had announced Rs. 600,000 as his head money.
Around two dozen FIRs had been registered against him in different police stations of Sibi and Bolan districts.
He was wanted in cases of kidnapping for ransom and receiving extortion from coalmine owners of Margat and other areas of Bolan district. He was killed in March 2016 in Sibbi. The story about him on social media as being in a hospital in India is wrong and baseless.
