Pakistan is going to ask ‘Interpol’ to deport Baloch leader Brahamdagh Bugti who talks openly against Pakistan committing violence in Balochistan.
“The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) will send a formal reference to Interpol within the next few days for the extradition of Brahamdagh Bugti,” Pakistan Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali said.
Nisar’s comment came after India’s Home Minister Rajnath Singh said he was reviewing Bugti’s application for the political asylum in India on Friday.
Baloch Republican Party (BRP) Chief Bugti went to the Indian consulate in Geneva, Switzerland. He went there to inquire about the process of seeking asylum in India.
When asked about India’s offer of citizenship to Bugti, Nisar poked India by saying that the offer had made it clear as to who was supporting terrorism.
“It has substantiated the Indian Prime Minister’s statement of interference in Pakistan,” he said, at the headquarters of the National Database Registration Authority (NADRA).
“Their (Indians’) feelings about Brahamdagh Bugti and their invitation to him unmistakably establish who is behind terrorism (in Balochistan),” Nisar was quoted as saying.
The minister also accused India of blaming Pakistan for the Uri terrorist attack without any concrete evidence.
“The Indians don’t have any evidence, so what sort of investigation can Pakistan carry out? They have blamed us just for defaming Pakistan,” he said.
Eighteen Indian soldiers were killed in a terror attack on an army base camp in Uri town in Jammu and Kashmir on September 18.
