Test-drive the GATK tools and Best Practices pipelines on Terra

Check out this blog post to learn how you can get started with GATK and try out the pipelines in preconfigured workspaces (with a user-friendly interface!) without having to install anything.

Inconsistency between Alt Variant in BAM and bamout from MuTect2

I have a BAM from MarkDuplicates, Realigned and Recalibrated pipeline showing only 2 reads with deletion.
After MuTect2 pipeline the somatic genotype shows 6 reads (marked below). I have only found 2 in the BAM.
chr22 41574941 . GTACACTAGACA G . clustered_events;homologous_mapping_event ECNT=4;HCNT=2;MAX_ED=220;MIN_ED=2;NLOD=151.47;TLOD=10.52 GT:AD:AF:ALT_F1R2:ALT_F2R1:FOXOG:QSS:REF_F1R2:REF_F2R1 ## 0/1:96,6:0.052:4:2:.:3364,190:34:62 0/0:670,0:0.00:0:0:.:22361,0:330:340
Running --> java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T HaplotypeCaller -R Homo_sapiens.GRCh37.75.genome.fa -I regular.bam -o mutect2_regular.vcf -bamout regular.bamout
I can see at least 12 reads with the above deletion.
Regular BAM: tview_chr22_41574941.png
BAMOUT: tview_chr22_bamout.png
How is that happening? In the original bam I can't see those reads with deletion, but in the bamout there are at least 10 of then!!!
How MuTect2 from GATK3.8 is calling this deletion with 0/1:96,6 if they do not exist in the original BAM?
How the reads with the deletion appears in the bamout?
Thanks for any help
