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.
