Islamabad: Former military ruler Pervez Musharraf was on Tuesday remanded to 14 days judicial custody by an anti-terrorism court for his alleged involvement in the murder of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.
Musharraf’s plea for reconstituting the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) was also rejected by the court, as reported by a leading Pakistani daily Dawn.
69-year-old Musharraf was the president when Benazir Bhutto was assassinated while addressing a rally outside Rawalpindi in 2007.
He was accused in the case and declared an offender in 2011.
Musharraf is presently in his farmhouse which has been declared as a sub-jail after the judge remanded him to judicial custody till May 4 earlier this month, in connection with judges’ detention case.
The former military ruler returned to Pakistan after four years of self-exile to contest elections to be held on May 11. However, he was disqualified from contesting in elections.
