Islamabad: A Pakistani anti-terrorism court on Tuesday rejected former military ruler Pervez Musharraf's bail plea in connection with the killing of Baloch nationalist leader Akbar Bugti.

Judge Mohammad Ismaeel Baloch of the anti-terrorism court in Quetta had on Monday heard Musharraf's bail application and reserved his judgement.

Nawabzada Jamil Bugti, the son of Akbar Bugti, has named Musharraf, former premier Shaukat Aziz, former Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao, former Balochistan Governor Owais Ghani and local official Abdul Samad Lasi for being responsible for his father's murder in 2006.

The same court had on Monday issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Musharraf, Aziz, Ghani and Lasi, the former district administration chief of Dera Bugti. The warrants were issued after Musharraf and the others failed to appear before the judge despite repeated summons.
