Baku, January 18, AZERTAC

An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Quetta acquitted on Monday former military ruler General (retd) Pervez Musharraf in the case of the murder of Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP) leader Nawab Akbar Bugti who was killed in a military operation in 2006, according to The Express Tribune newspaper.

The court also acquitted former federal home minister Aftab Khan Sherpao, and former provincial home minister Shoaib Nosherwani.

During the hearing, the court also rejected the request by Nawabzada Jamil Akbar Bugti, son of Akbar Bugti, to order exhumation of his father’s body to ensure the body buried in Dera Bugti was that of his late father.
