Akbar Bugti case: Bring Musharraf before us, says Pakistan Court

A Pakistan court on Monday rejected security concerns and directed police to produce former military ruler Pervez Musharraf for the hearing of the murder case of Baloch leader Akbar Bugti on 30 July. Police presented initial chargesheets against Musharraf to the anti-terrorism court in southern-western city of Quetta, saying the former ruler could not be presented due to security threats. Judge Muhammad Ismail Baloch accepted the chargesheet but rejected concerns about security and ordered police crime branch department to produce the accused on next hearing, said a lawyer. Musharraf has been accused of orchestrating murder of Bugti, the chief of his tribe, killed in an army op.
