Arrest warrants issued for Shahzain, 27 bodyguards


The Additional Sessions Judge-V Quetta on Friday issued arrest warrants for Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP) provincial president Nawabzada Shahzain Bugti and his 27 security guards. The arrest warrants were issued after the Supreme Court cancelled the bail of Shahzain and his guards granted by the Balochistan High Court.
They were arrested by the Frontier Corps (FC) on December 22, 2010 at the Buleli checkpost in Quetta for allegedly smuggling weapons. A huge cache of weapons and ammunition, including 50 Kalashnikov assault rifles, anti-aircraft guns and 46,000 rounds, was recovered from their vehicles.
