ISLAMABAD: An Islamabad sessions court hearing the Lal Masjid cleric’s murder case on Friday rejected the request of Islamabad police seeking physical remand of former president Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf, DawnNews reported.
Police had submitted a request seeking five-day-remand of the former dictator over the case pertaining to the alleged murder of cleric Ghazi Abdul Rasheed and his wife during the Lal Masjid military operation.
The bench hearing the case rejected the police request saying that the remand could not be granted without producing the accused in court.
Police had registered a case against Musharraf last month after receiving an order from the Islamabad High Court over the murder of the Abdul Rashid Ghazi during the 2007 Lal Masjid operation.
Earlier on Thursday Pakistan’s former military ruler General (retd) Pervez Musharraf was arrested in Lal Masjid (Red Mosque) killing case just hours after submitting surety bonds in the Supreme Court.
The bonds were submitted in connection to the three other major cases pending against the former president, namely the Benazir Bhutto murder case, judges’ detention case and the Nawab Akbar Bugti murder case.
Musharraf was granted bail the other cases and his lawyer had said on Wednesday he was cleared to leave the country.
