Simultaneously, an employee of Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL) identified as Shah Dost Bugti, son of Suri Bugti, was reportedly taken into custody by the Pakistani forces in Dera Bugti.

As per reports, Shah Dost Bugti was seized while returning home after completing his work duty at gate number 2 of the gas field, and his whereabouts have remained undisclosed ever since. It is worth noting that Shah Dost Bugti’s brother Ali Dost Bugti and uncle, Pathan son of Marzian Bugti, are already in the custody of the security forces.
