Brahumdagh Bugti was born to Rehan Bugti. He is the brother of Zaamur and Zabad (the wife of Mehran Baluch ). He is the grandson of Akbar Khan Bugti. His father died a short time after his birth and he was raised up by his grandfather.


He went into exile after the death of his grandfather Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti in a military operation in "Tratani", an adjacent area of Kohlu, Balochistan on 26 August 2006.Asma Jahangir, a renowned Human Rights activist and former president of the Supreme Court Bar Association of Pakistan. Talking to the BBC Urdu service she claimed that the DCO Dera Bugti had told her that Brahumdagh Bugti was on an nationalistic agenda and he wanted to autonomy for Balochistan Balochistan from Pakistan. Pakistani government wanted to pacify Balochistan from separatists so they wanted arrest three main separatist Baloch leaders namely Nawab Akbar Bugti, Balach Marri and Nawab Brahumdagh Bugti.[1] Pakistan government has not spend enough funds to build infrastructure in Balochistan especially roads and achools and that has caused widespread dissatisfaction among the Balochs and Brahuis. Asma Jahangir alleged that after the assassination of Nawab Akbar Bugti and Balach Marri, the Pakistani government was behind Brahumdagh Bugti. Brahumdagh accused Pakistani intelligence agencies for the attacks on him while he was in Kabul, Afghanistan where he had sought refuge. The Government of Pakistan has asked for Brahumdagh's return from Afghanistan and also accused India of supporting the Baloch rebels living in Afghanistan.[2] In October 2010, he and his family arrived in Switzerland and sought political asylum.[3]

He is alleged of carrying an Indian passport.[4][5][6][7][8] Sources says that Brahumdagh Bugti is being funded by RAW.
