Brahumdagh Bugti’s application for political asylum rejected

 The Swiss government rejected self-exiled Baloch separatist leader Brahumdagh Bugti’s application for political asylum on Thursday.
Bugti took to social networking website Twitter to express dismay at the rejection. “After more than seven years of waiting Switzerland has now rejected my application for political asylum,” he wrote.
The self-exiled Baloch Republican Army leader had earlier also tried to seek political asylum in India after the Swiss authorities turned down a similar request last year.
A number sedition cases are registered against Brahamdagh for supporting the Indian prime minister’s blatant interference in Pakistan’s internal affairs.
The cases were registered after the Baloch separatist lauded Narendra Modi’s speech on India’s independence day last year in which he accused Pakistan of human rights abuses in Balochistan.
