Express September 13, 2011

ISLAMABAD: Balochistan Government on Wednesday sought four weeks time from the High Court to get an arrest warrant for former president Pervez Musharraf and other nominated accused in Nawab Akbar Bugti’s murder case.

Deputy Attorney General said arrest warrants for the accused have not been submitted, therefore the Interior Ministry could not request the Interpol for issuing Red Warrants for Pervez Musharraf and other accused outside the country.

Advocate General Balochistan Amanullah Kanrani assured the court that warrants for the accused will be obtained from the concerned court of law and requested the court for four weeks time to obtain and submit the warrants.

The court accepted the request and adjourned the hearing till October 12.

Nawab Akbar Bugti was killed along with several tribesman after their hideout in a cave was bombed by the army.

The army said it attacked the target after a military chopper took fire from the location and fired several missiles in response.

Earlier the federal government was to submit a progress report on the extradition of former president Pervez Musharraf, the principal accused in the murder of Nawab Akbar Bugti, when the Balochistan High Court (BHC) resumes hearing of the case on Tuesday.

The court had asked for a report after the government consistently failed to extradite Musharraf from the UK and present him before the bench.

Rsingh | 9 years ago | Reply In contrast to this India's behavior has not been anything more than house arrest to the Hurriyat Separatist. Not to forget India doesn't tax Kashmirs and they get free rations and Indian government gives 8 times aid to kashmir than it gives to any other Indian state. Baluchis revolted not because they wanted to independent state but they equitable stake in natural resources that get sucked by other states of Pakistan. Hope the British Parliament is listening.

Shouldn't the govt be focused on helping with the flood victims? it shouldn't look to national help first. help should come from local and provincial government. Time to show the Commissionerate system can deliver. So far it has flunked the test!
