According to media reports, Balochistan Chief Minister Aslam Raisani has asked a committee to assess the kidnappers' demands.

A Balochistan Government statement said that a list of 1,109 alleged missing persons provided by the BLUF is being scrutinized.

"We have set up a high-level committee, including high-ranking officials and politicians, to locate the whereabouts of the alleged missing persons listed by the Balochistan Liberation United Front," The Daily Times quoted the statement, as saying.

BLUF has demanded the release of 141 women detained in various Pakistani jails, information on 6,000 missing persons and a resolution on Baloch independence aspirations.

On March 2, the kidnappers had set a deadline of four days for thePakistan Government to meet their demands.

BLUF sent a letter to a news agency in Quetta warning that Solecki would be killed if their demands were not met.

Solecki was abducted from Quetta on February 2. (ANI)
