Islamabad: A Pakistani court in Balochistan has issued arrest warrants against the guarantors of former military dictator Pervez Musharraf after he failed to appear in connection with the 2006 Akbar Bugti murder case.  

The Anti-Terrorism Court in Quetta issued the warrants against Mumtaz Ahmad and Nazeer Ahmad after the 70-year-old former president failed to appear in court yesterday.  

The hearing of the case was adjourned to April 7.  

Baloch nationalist leader Akbar Khan Bugti was killed in a cave on August 26, 2006 during a military crackdown ordered by Musharraf, who was then president and army chief.  

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

His death triggered angry protests across the country.
