Balochistan High Court rejected Jamil Bugti's petition, Musharraf's acquittal order maintained

Quetta (Dunya News) – A two-member bench of Balochistan High Court (BHC) on Wednesday rejected a petition against the acquittal of former president General Pervez Musharraf among other suspects in Nawab Akbar Bugti murder case, reported Dunya News.

The petition was filed by late Nawab Akbar Bugti’s son Nawabzada Jamil Bugti. Quetta’s special Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) had acquitted former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf, former interior minister Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao and former provincial home minister Shoaib Nosherwani on January 18, 2017.

Jamil Bugti had challenged the decision of special ATC in BHC. However, a two-member bench comprising of Justice Jamal Khan Mandokhail and Justice Nazeer Ahmed Lango rejected the petition and maintained the acquittal order given by ATC.
