An application has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking suo moto notice on the non-implementation on the FIR of Akbar Bugti’s murder.

Talal Bugti, president of the Jamhoori Watan Party and son of the late Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Bugti, has filed the petition in the Supreme Court asking for the implementation of an FIR registered against Akbar Bugti’s murder.

The names of former President Pervez Musharraf, former prime minister Shaukat Aziz, former Interior Minister Aftab Sherpao, former Balochistan governor Owais Ghani and former Balochistan chief minister Jam Yousaf are in the FIR.

Authorities concerned weren’t registering an FIR against Bugti’s murder till the Balochistan High Court ordered them to do so in October 2009.

Talal has pleaded that most of the people named in the FIR are in Pakistan, but they haven’t been arrested yet. He has also pleaded that Interpol should be activated to bring Musharraf back to Pakistan and face the law.

Nawab Akbar Bugti was killed in a military operation in 2006 in Balochistan.

    That’s all we need.

    I think it is good this has happened, as now people can see what kind of a person is this warlord was.

    Musharaff should be brought to trial for helping Pakistan out of a bankruptcy, giving economic growth never seen before, standing up against islamic fundos, ridding people like the above mentioned, for being more of a democrat than so called present day democrat, for giving true freedom of speech (TV), for trying to project a softer picture (true) of Pakistan & above all for not being corrupt (owning surrey places or apartments in park lane)

    Yes, he should stand trail for all the above crimes against us Pakistani’s because we as a nation are the worst kind of people there can be.

    We deserve people like our present day political leader & so called independent judiciary (yes, they are independent of the power of Thinking & Competence).Recommend

    I am sure next we will hear family of Bait Ullah Mehsud filing a petition against General Kayani.

    Bugti was fighting the state and Army created good example of how to deal with such miscreants.Recommend

    Yes i think all those who have been convicted and are in jail should request Supreme Court to revisit their cases and launch fresh FIRs against Police / law enforcement agencies and respective heads of states / Governors /CMs /COAS and IGs of those time.I think our courts will be so independent and philinthropic that a time will come when they will take suo moto notice regarding all those grieved families of India whose sons were killed in action fighting against Pak Army in 1965 and 71 to in order to launch FIR against state / Army .Recommend

    Salaam to all,
    The martyrs of Nawab Akbar Khan Bughti is really a serious issue.The comments presented here depicts the freedom of expression.i appreciate thet.We should keep all aspects in our mind.Nawab sahib martyr is really a big controversey but for the sake of our country,Musharraf should face court.As he was president and chief of army staff at that time,he is responsibe for this incident and he should clarify his position in court.My question to all is that if we are against Pak Army to such an extent,why not we should sold our independence?sold it,why we are taking the martrys of these Jawans on our heads.We should become like Kashmiris and Palestineans.Nawb akhbar Bughti martyr is a political issue.We can not expect for better from these instituitions if we threatens the sovereighnty of country.Politicians of that time shoulb be sent to jail and please be with the brothers of BalochistanRecommend
