Islamabad: A Pakistan court on Monday directed police to produce former military ruler Pervez Musharraf for the hearing in the murder case of Baloch leader Akbar Bugti on July 30.

Police presented initial chargesheets against Musharraf to the anti-terrorism court in southern-western city of Quetta, saying the former ruler could not be presented due to security threats.

Judge Muhammad Ismail Baloch accepted the chargesheet but rejected concerns about security and ordered crime branch department to produce him on July 30, said a lawyer.

Baloch nationalist leader Bugti was killed in a cave in August 2006 during a military crackdown ordered by Musharraf. Bugti was the chief of the Jamhoori Watan Party and an influential tribal chief who controlled the gas-rich district of Dera Bugti in Balochistan province.
