Balochistan police formally arrests Musharraf in Bugti murder case

Islamabad, June 13 (ANI): Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf has been formally arrested by police from Balochistan in Akbar Bugti murder case.

At the same time, an anti-terrorist court ordered a two-week-long judicial remand for Musharraf.

According to Dawn News, Musharraf will have to stay at his Chak Shahzad farmhouse, declared a sub-jail, for the duration of the remand.

Bugti was killed in a cave on August 26, 2006 during a military crackdown ordered by Musharraf, who was president and army chief at the time.

Bugti had led an armed campaign to press for provincial autonomy and a greater share of profits from Balochistan's natural resources, the report added. (ANI)
