Bhutto (Sindhi: ڀُٽو‎) is a Sindhi Rajput clan[1][2] found in Sindh, Pakistan. They have been settled in the area for over two centuries, having migrated to Sindh from Jaisalmer in India under Setho Khan Bhutto in the seventeenth century.[3] According to other authors, the family migrated to Sindh (mostly in Larkana and Sehwan) from Sarsa in Hissar.[4] The Bhutto family of Pakistan hails from this clan.
