QUETTA - Crimes Branch Director Muhammad Naheem Khan Kakar Wednesday said the Balochistan chief secretary stopped him from recording the statements of ex-chief minister Jam Muhammad Yousuf and former provincial interior minister Shohib Nosherwani in the Bugti murder case. He revealed this before a division bench comprising Balochistan High Court Chief Justice Qazi Faez Essa and Justice Muhammad Hashim Khan Kakar during the hearing of a constitutional petition filed by Jamil Akbar Bugti, the eldest son of Akbar Bugti. The director, who is the head of investigation team, told the court that besides attaining the arrest warrants for former Dera Bugti DCO Samad Lasi, the statement of Moulvi Malluk, who led the funeral prayers of Bugti, was recorded. Asked if the Crimes Branch had made any arrest or attained their warrants, he told the court that they had decided to record the statements of accused nominated in the case, including Jam Yousuf, Shohib Nosharwani but the chief secretary stopped them from doing so. The court told the director that he was the head of investigation team and the chief secretary had no authority to stop him from recording the statements of nominated accused. Additional Advocate General Nasrullah Achakzai told the court that no directives were issued by chief secretary. The chief secretary has issued directives to implement all the directives of court regarding investigations, he added. The court directed the investigation team to inform it about those who were creating problems in the probe because no person or personnel could create hurdle in the way of investigation. The additional advocate general also told the division bench that the federal government had been requested to contact Interpol for issuing red warrants for former president Pervez Musharraf and other accused abroad. Deputy Attorney General Malik Sikandar Khan sought time to brief the court about the progress on the Balochistan governments request to the centre for the extradition of accused. Talking to media after the hearing Jamil Bugti said he had not pinned any hope on the government that it would arrest the accused nominated in his fathers murder. He alleged the government was dragging feet.
