Baloch leader Bugti to file FIR against Musharraf
August 19, 2008 15:59 IST
Nawabzada Talal Akbar Bugti, who heads a faction of the Jamhoori Watan Party, submitted an application to Quetta city police station for lodging an First Information Report against Musharraf in connection with the murder of his father and 66 other people of his tribe.
However, police officer Z S Kazmi told him that under the law, the case could be filed only in the police station of the area where the Akbar Bugti was killed.
"The case cannot be registered in the city police station because the incident did not take place in its jurisdiction," Kazmi said. Bugti, on the other hand, claimed nobody knew where his father and his supporters were murdered.
Bugti sent in the application soon after Musharraf announced his resignation on Monday, naming in it besides Musharraf, former Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz, former governor Owais Ahmed Ghani, Chief Minister Jam Mir Mohammad Yousuf [Images], Home Minister Shoaib Nausherwani, former Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Sherpao and Defence Minister Rao Sikandar Iqbal.
He said all these former government functionaries were involved in the murder of his father and his 66 supporters.
