Islamabad, Aug 11: A Pakistani court has given authorities seven days to initiate action against ex-President Pervez Musharraf in connection with a case related to the killing of Baloch nationalist leader Akbar Bugti, expressing dissatisfaction over the slow pace of investigation.

Balochistan High Court Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa was dissatisfied with the Crime Branch's performance in the case and gave it seven days to take action against Musharraf, currently living in Britain in self-exile.

During a hearing held on Tuesday in Quetta, Deputy Attorney General Malik Sikandar sought more time on behalf of the federal government from the High Court to present a report on efforts to seek Musharraf's extradition.

Balochistan's Additional Advocate General Nasrullah Achakzai informed the court that the provincial government had asked the federal government to seek the extradition of Musharraf and other accused in the case.

He said the federal government had been requested to approach Interpol in this regard. Sikandar said more time was needed to complete the letter that the provincial government is required to present for the extradition of the accused.

"The federal government is committed to ensuring the implementation of all decisions in the Akbar Bugti murder case," he told the court.
