Islamabad, Jan 16 (ANI): Mach prison officials are reportedly getting ready to detain former president Pervez Musharraf on his return to Pakistan.
The former president is wanted in the Nawab Mohammad Akbar Bugti murder case along with his accomplices, including his former handpicked Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz and Balochistan chief minister Jam Mir Mohammad Yousaf, the Daily Times reports.
Nawab Bugti was ambushed and killed on his way from the Bugti Hills to Marri Hills on August 26, 2006.
The prisons authorities were also reportedly considering an option of keeping Musharraf in the District Jail, Quetta, but due to high security facilities available at Mach, it is expected that the former president will be detained at the central prison.
Nawabzada Jamil Akbar Bugti, son of late Nawab Bugti, had filed a petition in the Balochistan High Court, asking it to direct the officials concerned to register a murder case against Musharraf and his accomplices for killing Nawab Bugti and his 32 other companions in Bugti Hills.
The high court eventually ordered registration of a murder case and asked the government to issue international arrest warrants for Musharraf through the Interior Ministry.
Reports suggest that arrest warrants have been issued by the Balochistan government, but they are yet to be served on the accused who are abroad.
Almost all accomplices of Musharraf denied the allegations that they were involved in the assassination of Nawab Akbar Bugti.
The Sindh Home Department has reportedly received the arrest warrants against Musharraf, issued by the relevant courts of Rawalpindi in the Benazir Bhutto assassination case. (ANI)
