Parvez Musharraf
Islamabad, June 13: Pakistan's former president Pervez Musharraf has been formally arrested by a Balochistan Police team in the Akbar Bugti murder case.

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

Musharraf will remain at his farmhouse for the duration of the remand. The farmhouse, at Chak Shahzad, a village in Islamabad, had earlier been declared a sub-jail.

Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Bugti was killed in a cave Aug 26, 2006 during a military crackdown ordered by Musharraf who was president and army chief at the time.

Bugti had led an armed campaign to press for provincial autonomy and a greater share of profits from Balochistan's natural resources.
