Karima Baloch’s body to reach Pakistan tomorrow, will be buried in Turbat

The body of human rights and social activist Karima Baloch will arrive in Pakistan on 24th January and she will be laid to rest the next day in her native town of Turbat in Balochistan.

The news was confirmed by her brother Sameer Mehrab on Twitter and wrote that Baloch’s funeral will be held at midday.

“My sister Karima Baloch will be laid to rest in our hometown Tump, Balochistan, on Monday, January 25. Her body is being flown to Karachi & will arrive at 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, January 24. Our family members will then take her body to Balochistan. The funeral will be held at midday,” he posted on Twitter.

Karima Baloch was found dead in Canada, a day after she went missing last month. She had gone missing on the 20th December, and her family later confirmed that the activist’s body had been found.

The police found her body drowned off an island just near Toronto’s lakeshore. Her husband, Hammal Haider, and brother identified her body. A Canadian refugee, Karima was named as one of the world’s 100 most “inspirational and influential” women in 2016 by a British outlet.
