Slain Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti’s two sons - Jamil Bugti and Talal Bugti – have said that since they were awarethat no police station or court would register their FIR against the country’s administration regarding their father’s killing, they had no option but to "register an FIR through the media".

The duo said on Thursday evening that they registered an FIR through the media against President Pervez Musharraf, Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz, Balochistan Governor Owais Ahmed Ghani, Balochistan Chief Minster Jam Yousaf, the Balochistan Corp Commander and the Frontier Corps Inspector General on the charges of killing their father.

According to the Daily Times, the two brothers said that since they knew "no court or police station in the country would register their FIRs, they had decided to use the media to do so".

They said that they wanted "international human rights organisations and the media come to know about the killing" of their father.

Jamil Bugti demanded the establishment of an international medical board to investigate the causes of his father’s death and that a deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) test be conducted on his dead body.

"We demand that the Nawab’s grave be opened again in the presence of the international medical board and the causes of his death be ascertained," the paper quoted him as saying.

He further said that the family still did not believe that the body buried in Dera Bugti was that of the late Nawab, since "no one was shown the body".

The family would not ask the government for permission to enter Dera Bugti to visit the nawab’s grave, he added.

"They are the killers of my father. How are we going to request them to allow us entry in Dera Bugti? By locking his coffin, they even hid the actual causes of the Nawab’s death," said Talal on the occasion.
