ATC issues fresh arrest warrants in Bugti murder case


Anti -Terrorism Court (ATC) once again issued arrest warrants for seven high-profile accused, including ex-president Pervez Musharraf in the Bugti murder case. On Wednesday, the presiding judge Muhammad Nawaz Khan Barakzai resumed proceedings of the case. During the hearing the investigating officer told the court that former Governor Awais Ghani and ex-interior minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao had been released against surety bonds of Rs 0.5 million each. He also told the court that they had dispatched arrest warrants for Musharraf and ex-prime minister Shaukat Aziz, but had received no replies from them.
“A letter was also written to the National Assembly to apprehend Aftab Sherpao, who said that he is ready to appear before the court provided he is given security,” he said. To which the court expressed anger and directed investigators to present them in court on the next date of hearing after the cancellation of surety bonds. The court then issued fresh warrants for Musharraf, Shaukat, Aziz Awais Ahmed Ghani, Sherpao, ex-provincial home minister Shoaib Nosherwani and former DCO Dera Bugti, Abdul Samad Lasi and ordered all the accused to be present in court on the next date of the hearing on August 15.


  1. .
    The accused can not appear in the court until the sanitary conditions improve to international standards in the court …

  2. This is hillarious. Does the court really expect these people to come to them? I bet these judges go back to their chambers and die out laughing after they give these orders because even they know it'll never happen.
