Nawab Akbar Bugti Killing Case: Son Challenges ATC Acquittal Against His Father's Alleged Killer in High Court
An anti-terrorism court (ATC) had acquitted former military ruler Musharraf, his interior minister Sherpao and ex-home minister of Balochistan Nosherwani on January 18, 2016. Not happy with the ruling, Nawabzada Jamil Bugti, a son of Akbar Bugti, challenged it in the BHC.
Jamil Bugti’s attorney told a BHC bench, headed by Justice Shakeel Ahmed Baloch, that the ATC had earlier dismissed the acquittal pleas of the accused. Surprisingly however, the same ATC later exonerated them on technical ground which is violation of the law and the Constitution.
The bench admitted the petition for hearing and summoned all the three accused.
