Former military ruler Pervez Musharraf was formally arrested by a police team from Balochistan in the Akbar Bugti murder case.

Subsequently, an anti-terrorist court ordered a two-week-long judicial remand of the former army strongman.

Musharraf is to remain at his farmhouse for the duration of the remand. The farmhouse at Chak Shahzad had earlier been declared a sub-jail.

The Quetta police headed by by DIG Crime Branch, Noshad Yusuf, reached Islamabad on Wednesday to arrest Musharraf in the Akbar Bugti murder case.
After meeting the required formalities, they proceeded to the farm house of Pervez Musharraf where he is currently under house arrest.

Sources said that the police team of Quetta interrogated Musharraf for almost two hours and left for Quetta. The arrest was made at a time when hundreds of residents of Dera Bugti are protesting in the federal capital under the supervision of elder son of late Nawab Akbar Bughti who was reportedly killed during an operation of security forces years ago.

Bugti was killed in a cave on August 26, 2006 during a military crackdown ordered by Musharraf who was president and army chief at the time.
