Musharraf said Bugti's death was an accident, and he was not killed by the security forces.

"During the operation, our three army officers and other jawans found Bugti in a cave and they had requested him to lay down arms and at the same time the cave collapsed and he was killed along with our officers," Musharraf had said.

Musharraf said the government was compelled to initiate a military offensive in Balochistan as extremism was taking dangerous proportions in the region, he added that four hundred rockets were fired at Sui plant in a day and in such condition it had no option but to launch military operation in Balochistan.
