QUETTA: Balochistan Awami Party leader Senator Mir Sarfraz Khan Bugti on Thursday has been detained after his bail plea was rejected by Additional Sessions Judge Quetta Munir Ahmed in a case pertaining to kidnapping of a minor girl.

According to details, the senator has been shifted to Bijli Road Police Station.

It is to be mentioned here that a woman had lodged an FIR against Bugti accusing him of abducting her 10-year-old granddaughter on December 7. The woman said that her daughter Sehrish was killed in 2013, after which a court had given her custody of the minor girl [her granddaughter].

She told, “The court had given me the custody of the girl after the death of her mother and as per the legal orders, I brought my granddaughter to the family court for meeting with her father Tawakkal Ali Bugti.”

The woman continued that Tawakkal Ali, who was also named in the FIR, forcefully dragged the girl into the car and took her to Senator Sarfaraz Bugti’s house.

Talking to the media after his arrest, Sarfraz Bugti said that he had been involved in the case for political objectives. “We will approach the Balochistan High Court for justice,” he said.
