The FIR stated that on December 7, the woman had taken her 10-year-old granddaughter Maria to the family court in Quetta to be reunited with her father Tawakal Ali Bugti, but Maria’s father abducted her from outside the court.
She said her daughter Sehrish Bibi was killed in 2013 after which the court had entrusted her with Maria. According to the petitioner, Maria was brought to the family court on Saturday to be reunited with her father as per the court’s order.
However, Senator Bugti has pleaded not guilty and denied his involvement in the kidnapping case.
