Guard; specially women and children are humiliated.
The humiliation of local fisher brethren of entire Balochistan
coastal belt isn't a new trend by the hands of PCG but in the wake
of a successful attack on a check post in front of the coast guard
camp on july 21st, in retaliation PCG surpassed the limits of their

Radio Gwank reported an other worrisome fact that people are fearful
of the consequences of reporting of the accesses that the Pakistan
Coast Guard unleashed in the area, as their atrocities are not
reported in print and electronic media including the social media.
