New Delhi [India], Mar.1 (ANI): Baloch Republican Party (BRP) member from Germany, Ashraf Sherjan, slammed the red warrant by Pakistan against Baloch leader Brahumdagh Bugti and called it as cowardly act. Sherjan asserted that Pakistan should catch hold of the real culprits like Rasheed Ahmed, who is responsible for blasting an Ahmed mosque last year and Hafiz Sayeed figuring on the NIA most wanted list. "He moves freely across Pakistan without any fear of getting caught," he told ANI. The BRP member also stated that Pakistan just looks for ways to torment the Baloch people. "If they really want to issue the red warrant then they should issue it against the real perpetrators rather than Baloch leader Brahumdagh Bugti, who is fighting for freedom," he added. Pakistan had approached the Interpol seeking Red Notices against Baloch nationalist leader Brahamdagh Bugti and his aide for their alleged involvement in militancy in the restive province. The decision was taken after Bugti did not respond to gestures by the Pakistan Government to shun violence. (ANI)
