Nawab Bugti murder case: ATC grants Musharraf day's exemption

The Anti Terrorism Court Quetta on Wednesday admitted the application of former President General Pervez Musharraf seeking a day's exemption from appearance before the court in the Nawab Mohammad Akbar Bugti murder case. The court headed by Judge Aftab Ahmad Lone resumed the hearing of the case. Former Federal Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Sherpao and former Balochistan Home Minister Shoaib Nosherwani were present in the court.

The court expressed concern over delay in formation of board for medical examination of the former military ruler and remarked that the court had already granted six weeks to the provincial health department. Director General Health Balochistan Azam Baloch prayed the court for another four weeks to constitute the board for carrying out medical examination of Musharraf. The Court, however, rejected the request and adjourned the court till February 25 next.
