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.
