QUETTA: Provincial president of the Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP) Shahzain Bugti surrendered to authorities in Quetta on Saturday, DawnNews reported.

Bugti surrendered along with his 26 guards with whom he had been implicated in an illegal arms possession case in Dec 2010.

Speaking to media representatives prior to surrendering to authorities, Bugti said that although he had been implicated in a bogus case, he was prepared to face the courts.

The JWP's provincial president further said that he was being arrested but those responsible for the killing of Akbar Bugti were not being punished.

The case stems from Bugti's arrest of Dec 22, 2010. Security forces had arrested Bugti along with 26 of his personal guards and had recovered a huge quantity of illegal arms and ammunition when the JWP leader was driving with his convoy from the town of Chaman.
