QUETTA: A team from Crimes Branch Quetta reached Islamabad on Wednesday to arrest former president Pervez Musharraf in the Akbar Bugti murder case.

Sources in Crimes Branch Quetta investigating the case told Dawn.com that a police team comprising senior officials had reached the federal capital to arrest the former military ruler.

Earlier on Monday, an Anti-Terrorist Court in Quetta had issued non-bailable arrest warrants against Musharraf.

Moreover, on Tuesday, ATC Judge 1, Muhammad Ismail Baloch, had rejected a bail application submitted by Musharraf's lawyer in the same case.

The court had moreover ordered a police team to arrest Musharraf by June 24.

Jamil Bugti, a son of Akbar Bugti, had nominated Musharraf, former prime minister Shaukat Aziz and others in his father's murder.

Bugti was killed in a cave in Chalgri area of Bhamboor hills of Dera Bugti district on August 26, 2006 during a military crackdown ordered by Musharraf who was president and army chief at the time.
