BHC dismisses petition against Pervaiz Musharaf

The Balochistan High Court (BHC) on Wednesday heard the petition filed against the former President Pervaiz Musharaf.

BHC dismissed an application challenging the acquittal of former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf and others in the Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti murder case.

The application had been filed by the Baloch nationalist leader's son, Jamil Akbar Bugti, in 2016, challenging the verdict of an Anti-Terrorist Court (ATC) in Quetta that acquitted him and others in the case.

A divisional bench of BHC, comprising justice Jamal Mandokhail and Justice Nazeer Ahmed Langove, dismissed the application challenging the acquittal and maintained the judgement of the ATC.

"We are not satisfied with the judgment," Jamil Bugti's counsel, Advocate Sohail Rajput, told reporters outside the high court.
