PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High Court (PHC) on Monday granted a 24-day transit bail to former interior minister Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao in the murder case of Baloch chieftain Nawab Akbar Bugti.
The Pakistan Peoples Party – Sherpao (PPP-S) chairman had requested for the transit bail after Sibi Anti-Terrorism Court Judge Nawaz Khan Barakzai had issued arrest warrants against him and those accused for allegedly killing Bugti, during a hearing of the case on July 18.
Justice Shahjahan Akhunzada approved Sherpao’s request by giving him a 24-day transit bail which would enable him to travel to Sibi and appear before the court for the hearing scheduled on August 15.
The arrest warrants for suspects include former president Pervez Musharraf, former premier Shaukat Aziz, former governor of Balochistan Awais Ahmed Ghani, former chief secretary Shoaib Nausherwani and former DCO Dera Bugti Abdul Samad Lasi.
