Islamabad: Former Pakistani military ruler Pervez Musharraf was today ordered by an anti-terrorism court to appear before it on April 21 or face arrest in connection with the murder case of Baloch nationalist leader Akbar Bugti.  


The court in Quetta directed 70-year-old Musharraf to appear before it, failing which his bail would be canceled.  

“The court will issue arrest warrants against him if he fails to appear before it,” Sohail Rajput, the counsel of Bugti's son Jamil, told reporters quoting the remarks the judge made during the hearing.

Meanwhile, former federal interior minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao and former Balochistan home minister Mir Shoaib Nowsherwani appeared before the court in connection with the case.

The court ordered both former ministers to reappear before it on April 21.
