What's up?Balochistan govt decides to quash cases against Brahamdagh
Bramdagh Bugti, 30, heads the separatist Baloch Republican Party and its militant wing, the Baloch Republican Army. He has been accused of attacks against settlers in Balochistan, government installations and armed forces.
QUETTA: The Balochistan government on Friday has decided to withdraw cases against Baloch leader Brahamdagh Bugti, who is living in exile, DawnNews reported.
According to provincial ministry of interior and tribal affairs, 28 cases have been registered against Brahamdagh Bugti in Dera Bugti and Sui for carrying out anti-Pakistan activities from Afghanistan with the support of India.
Sources told DawnNews that these cases are being quashed on the directives of Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik.
Cases against other Baloch rebel leaders are also being considered to be withdrawn and the concerned districts in this regard have already been notified.
Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani has ordered to form a committee on the matter as well.
The decision meant that cases against Brahamdagh Bugti, Harbayar Marri and other Baloch leaders living abroad would be quashed in line with the government's policy of reconciliation
Brahamdagh Bugti, a grandson of Nawab Akbar Bugti, is the founder of Baloch Republican Party while Harbayar Marri, a son of Khair Bakhsh Marri, is a leader of Balochistan Liberation Army.
The Baloch nationalist leaders had already rejected interior minister's announcement about withdrawal of cases against Brahamdagh Bugti and Harbayar Marri last month and said the Balochistan issue cannot be resolved without recovery of missing persons and bringing to justice the elements involved in dumping bullet-riddled bodies.
