The CID police arrested Saifullah Bugti, Shamsuddin Bugti and Abdul Ghaffar Bugti, said to be BLA militants, in the Shershah area on May 7 and claimed that explosive material and illicit weapons were found in their possessions.
The suspects were charge-sheeted in which the banned PAC leaders were also named as absconders on the basis of the confessional statements of Saifullah and Abdul Ghaffar, who told before a magistrate that Rehmatullah had been supplying arms and ammunition to them from Balochistan for long and they were delivering it to Noor Mohammad and Uzair Baloch.
A number of cases were lodged against the suspects under Section 4/5 of the Explosive Substance Act and Section 13-D and 13-E of the Arms Ordinance.
