QUETTA: An Additional and Session Judge of Quetta has ordered the illegal weapons and vehicles seized from Jamhoori Watan Party’s (JWP) leader Nawabzada Shahzain Bugti to be produced before the court.
Additional and Session Judge Syed Zulfiqar Hasnain Naqvi issued an order on Tuesday while hearing the weapons recovery case. The court also summoned two more witnesses for prosecution.
During the hearing, the court recorded the statement of Assistant Sub- Inspector (ASI) Muhammad Ashraf.
Earlier, JWP leader Shahzain Bugti was brought to the Session Court amidst tight security and a large number of activities of JWP were present in the court premises who showered rose petals on their leader and shouted slogans in his favour.
Talking to media persons, Shahzain Bugti said that he was innocent and had nothing to do with the weapons.
Shahzain Bugti and his 26 companions were arrested in April this year after the Supreme Court cancelled their earlier bail granted by Balochistan High Court.
They had been arrested by paramilitary Frontier Corps (FC) on December 22, 2010 at the Baleli check post in Quetta for allegedly smuggling weapons.
