QUETTA:  Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP) provincial president Nawabzada Shahzain Bugti, while speaking to the media outside his residence on Saturday, consented to being arrested along with his associates following the non-bailable warrant issued against him, Express News reported.

Bugti told the media that he was being framed and that the case was fabricated, adding that the agencies had made his lawyer “disappear”, referring to his advocate being kidnapped some time ago.

“I am hopeful of being released soon”, Bugti told the press.

Earlier, following the non-bailable arrest warrants issued by Additional Session Judge – V Quetta Sayed Zulfiqar Naqvi against 27 persons including provincial president of the Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP) Nawabzada Shahzain Bugti, security forces surrounded his residence on Saturday.

Balochistan Home Minister Mir Zafarullah Zehri entered the house to talk to Bugti who had said that he would address the media after the meeting.

    law is inforced when required otherwise there is no law. if they accept the wil of millitary whatever they do all r fine but if they turned towards there people rights they r arrested. so thats happening in this case.

    Yes indeed he is being framed. Out of nowhere, 50 Kalashnikov’s, anti-aircraft guns and 46,000 7.62x39mm bullets managed to join his convoy. His lashkar is perhaps the most efficient and vigilant in modern warfare.

    In Pakistan law is for some people and some are immune. Our Prime minister is immune while all others can be arrested. Especially if you are a Baloch then law apply to you Pakistan is in Apnay Paon Par khud Kulhari Marna Mode. I have no idea how long this business of declaring someone traitor and less Pakistani will continue in Pakistan. On one hand Government is saying that they want to give amnesty to all Baloch leaders and want Self exiled leaders to come back and on the other hand they are arresting local Sardar then why any Baloch leader will come back. Tell me with this devvelopment will any any Baloch leader will ever come back???
    How long we will continue this attitude and will think that actually we are doing some better thing to Pakistan. God have mercy on our nation otherwise we dont deserve this land in a current state on the map.

    @usman786: I agree. the mindset which create Bangladesh is still prevalent in Pakistan and still we are never able to learn anything and we are on the path of denial and self destruction.

    @Much Amused:
    What amused? Your name is as silly as your comment! There is nothing to be amused of! Is he not your country man? Don’t make fun of him. If the govt of India thinks it appropriate and if he wants to come to India he is welcome provided you don’t need him. Remember we have provided asylum to Dalai Lama in the face of opposition from one country. May I ask you something? Would you go against the wishes of your all weather friend. It requires courage you know!
