FIR to Be Registered against Musharraf for Bugti’s Killing

A court in Pakistan has issued directives to police for registration of a case against former President Pervez Musharraf and several of his key aides in connection with killing of Baloch nationalist leader Nawab Akbar Bugti in a military operation in 2006.

On a petition seeking Musharraf’s trial for Bugti’s murder, a division bench of the Balochistan High Court had summoned the former president to appear before it, but neither he nor his counsel was present at the proceedings.

The court directed police in Dera Bugti district to register a First Information Report and to conduct an investigation. The lawyer of Bugti’s son Jamil Akbar Bugti, who had filed the petition, said the FIR would be filed once the court’s formal order is received.
