Akhtar Shah, the counsel of Pervez Musharaf, pleaded to the court that his client respects the court, but he cannot appear before the court pertaining to ‘security reasons’.

However Bugti’s lawyer has complained that in spite of repeated orders, the former president has failed to appear before the court.

The court ordered that the administration should ensure proper security to Pervez Musharraf while he makes his appearance in the court.

The Government of Pakistan had allowed Musharraf to go abroad for medical treatment in March, earlier this year.

Nawab Akbar Bugti, the leader of Balochistan, was killed on 26th August of 2006 in an operation in Balochistan’s rugged mountains of Taratani in the district of Kohlu.

To press for provincial autonomy Bugti had led an armed campaign and a greater share of profits earned from the natural resources of Balochistan.

The demise of the popular Baloch chieftain had given way to angry protests in parts of the nation.

Pervez Musharraf, who went into a self imposed exile in Dubai post being forced to resign as president facing an impeachment following the elections of 2008, had returned to Pakistan on the year  2013 to contest the elections but was implicated in multiple cases.

After losing in the polls, Musharraf was not permitted to leave Pakistan until the government allowed him in March of 2016 to go abroad for the sake of medical treatment following orders by the Supreme Court.

Pervez Musharraf has been facing a number of cases that include the high treason-trial since the year 2013 and he was barred from leaving Pakistan in 2014 by the government.

Musharraf obtained power in a bloodless coup in the year 1999, deposing the Prime Minister of that time Nawaz Sharif.

Prodyut came to Moscow to study engineering and later started working for a pharmaceutical company here before trying his hand in business. Besides running the two restaurants with the help of his wife, he was into the distribution of pharmaceutical products.

“After Russia won the first match of the World Cup, the footfall has gone up considerably. The Indians are also flooding in after the 6-9 p.m. game. That is the time both my restaurants remain full,” Prodyut said.

There are also plans to rope in registered fan clubs of Latin American countries, who will throng the restaurants during matches and then follow it up with after-game parties till the wee hours.

“I did get in touch with some of the fan clubs I had prior idea about. They agreed to come over and celebrate the games at our joints. Those will be gala nights when both eateries will remain open all night for them to enjoy,” Prodyut said.

Watching the World Cup is a dream come true for the couple, Sumana said.

“We want to make the Indians who have come here to witness the spectacle and feel at home too. We always extend a helping hand and since we are from West Bengal, we make special dishes for those who come from Bengal,” she added. (IANS)
