QUETTA: A district and sessions court on Monday granted bail to Nawabzada Gazain Marri, the son of late Baloch politician Nawaz Khair Bukhsh Marri, in a case related to the murder of Justice Nawaz Marri, ARY News reported.
Marri was arrested moments later he landed at Quetta airport, ending his self-imposed exile spanning 18 years.
The court granted him bail against a surety bond worth Rs1 million and ordered his release if he was not required in any other case.
Justice Nawaz Marri, a Balochistan High Court judge, was shot dead in a targeted attack on January 7, 2000, in the Zarghoon road area of Quetta. Gazain Marri, Hyrbayar Marri and others were nominated in the murder case.
It merits mention here that Mr. Marri had served as the home minister of Balochistan and left for Dubai soon after a military operation was launched in the province against anti-state elements.
Earlier this year, Marri had announced that he would return to the country after the month of Ramzan. “Neither I had any affiliation with any proscribed outfit nor favored the politics of violence,” he had told media in Dubai.
