A very important commander of Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) Ahmad Nawaz has surrendered, Waqt News reported. He surrendered to the Frontier Core and Civil Administration of Balochistan.

According to reports Nawaz was a trainer of insurgents. “He used to give tactical training to the recruits for insurgency,” FC sources revealed.

An FC spokesperson told the media that Ahmad Nawaz also sang the Pakistani national anthem at the time of surrender.

A number of Baloch insurgents and commanders have surrendered in the last few months. The first major surrender was that of 400 militants on last year’s Independence Day. In the next six months a total of 625 militants surrendered in front of Balochistan provincial government and decided to be a part of the political system to fight for their rights.

A major development in context of Baloch insurgency was when Indian Intelligence Agency RAW’s spy Kulbhushan Yadav was arrested on March 3, 2016 from the Pak-Iran border when he was trying to enter Pakistan. During the investigation and in his statement Yadav accepted that his mission was to fuel up the Baloch insurgency by providing tactical and operational assistance to the militants of BLA and BRA.

The arrest of Yadav is considered to be one of the biggest developments in fighting against the Baloch insurgency for Pakistan. The Indian spy further revealed his network in Pakistan, which helped the security agencies to break this network down.
