Lahore, May 3 (ANI): Deceased Baloch nationalist leader Nawab Akbar Bugti’s close aide has claimed that Bugti’s death was caused by a rocket fired by the nationalist leader himself.

“When security forces entered the cave where he (Bugti) was hiding, he attempted to fend them off by firing a shell. This caused a massive explosion, which resulted in the cave-in that led to the death of Bugti, one colonel, two majors and three commandoes,” the Daily Times quoted Wadera Muhammad Murad Bugti, as saying.

He added that Bugti had decided that he would rather die fighting than surrender to the security forces.

“When forces besieged his cave on August 26, 2006, he asked his comrades to leave the cave and let him fight them alone,” the aide said. (ANI)
