Quetta, Pakistan — A Pakistani court Monday acquitted former military ruler Pervez Musharraf over the 2006 killing of a Baloch rebel leader, one of three legal cases he faced after returning from exile, lawyers and his co-accused said.

“The court has dismissed all the charges against former ruler Pervez Musharraf and all those named in the case,” Aftab Sherpao, a former interior minister also named in the case, told media in the southwestern city of Quetta. 

The anti-terror court’s ruling regarding the killing of Nawab Akbar Bugti was confirmed by lawyers on both sides.
