The former military ruler of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf was indicted today by an anti-terrorism court in Quetta in the Bugti murder case.

The retired chief of staff however did not make an appearance in the court following his counsel’s submission of a medical report.

The anti-terrorism court then questioned the absence of a medical board’s report and made it clear that Musharraf will only be exempted from hearings if a medical board produced an assessment of his health and condition.

According to his counsel, the former ruler is suffering from pain in the back, due to which he is unable to appear before the court.

The case in question pertains to the Balochi nationalist leader Akbar Khan Bugti who was killed in 2006 in an operation conducted by the military under the authority of Pervez Musharraf, the then President and Chief of Army Staff of the country.

In the absence of the medical board’s report, the court adjourned the hearing to February 4, 2015.

2014 also saw a high profile treason case being filed against the military ruler under charges of subversion of the constitution and the declaration of emergency in 2007. The hearing of that case was also adjourned last week to February 18, 2015.
