Hyrbyair Marri is a Baloch nationalist activist and the fifth son of the Baloch nationalist leader Khair Bakhsh Marri. The government of Pakistan alleges that Marri is the leader of the Balochistan Liberation Army, which is designated a terrorist organization by Pakistan and the United Kingdom, but he was tried and acquitted of terrorism charges by a British court in 2009.

Others accused in the Chinese consulate attack includes Mian Aslan alias Achu alias Meeraq Baloch, Bashir Zaib, Noor Bakhsh Mengal, Kareem Marri, Captain Rehman Gul, Commander Nisar, Commander Gaindi and other separatists.

Police have recognised one of the accused through the biometric system, as Abdul Razzaq. While the record of three separatists couldn’t be found with the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA), they have been identified as Azal Khan Baloch, Razzaq Baloch and Raees Baloch. The separatists are believed to be linked with the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA).

Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, militants killed four people during an unsuccessful attempt to storm a Chinese consulate in Karachi, who were unhappy regarding the heavy Chinese investments in Balochistan.

Two policemen and a father and son applying for travel documents died as three suicide attackers assaulted the mission in the port city of Karachi. A militant group from the poverty-stricken province of Baluchistan said it was responsible, claiming it was fighting Chinese “occupation” and exploitation of resources.
