Brahamdagh insists he does not support militancy

GENEVA: Exiled leader of the Balochistan Republican Party (BRP) Brahumdagh Bugti has denied sponsoring armed militancy in Balochistan and maintained he only supported the movement through political means.

Speaking to this correspondent in Geneva, the dearest grandson and heir apparent of slain Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Bugti said he was not in Afghanistan for any purpose other than the fact that he was looking for an exit, had no other choice and it had become impossible to live in Pakistan. Bugti has made Geneva his home, with western help, after coming under tremendous pressure from Pakistan and he said he feared for his life in the turbulent Afghanistan but has appreciation for Hamid Karzai for hosting him and his young family. He lives a normal life in a posh Geneva suburb and has round the clock security with him, provided by the Swiss government as well as two men from his own Baloch tribe who shadow the young but suave leader all the time.
