Pervez Musharraf Quetta, Oct 10 (ANI): Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP) President Talal Bugti has announced a bounty of one billion rupees and a hundred acres of farmland on former President Pervez Musharraf for his crimes against humanity.

Bugti made this announcement during a news conference in the presence of PML-N leader Sardar Yaqoob Nasir, the Daily Times reported.

There was no truth in Musharraf’s recent statements, the JWP president said, adding that he was spreading lies from day one.

Musharraf was involved in heinous crimes against the state and society, such as dismissing an elected government and dissolving parliament, killing Akbar Bugti along with 70 others, the Lal Masjid incident and other crimes, Talal pointed out, emphasising that they were unpardonable.

He claimed that the All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) founder had undermined the sovereignty and integrity of Pakistan, and posed a security threat to the country.

Musharraf was a coward and would never return to Pakistan knowing the ground realities, Talal said, adding that if he was really brave, he should return to Pakistan immediately and face the criminal charges against him.

He suggested that Musharraf’s name should be sent to Interpol to bring him back to Pakistan, otherwise he would disclose more state secrets that might further weaken national sovereignty. He also urged the Chief Justice of Pakistan to issue an arrest warrant against the 67-year-old to bring him to justice. (ANI)
