Abdul Rasheed Ghazi murder case:  IHC conditionally sets aside arrest warrants of Musharraf

ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court (IHC) bench as set a condition to side line the arrest warrants of former military ruler Pervez Musaherrf in Abdul Rasheed Ghazi murder case.

According to reports, the trial court had issued arrest warrants of the former military ruler Musharraf for his failure to appear before the court.

Musharraf had challenged the warrants in Islamabad High Court.

Musharraf’s lawyer Malik Tahir Mehmood appeared before the court today (Wednesday) and produced the medical reports of the former president in the court. The counsel informed the court that his client could not appear before the court due to bad health.

Justice Noorul Haq Qureshi asked him why his client could not appear in regular court hearings despite the court orders.

The IHC bench however conditionally set aside the non-bailable arrest warrants of Musharraf and restored the bail sureties confiscated by the trial court.

The court ordered Musharraf to appear before the trial court in its hearing on April 27, otherwise the arrest warrants will be restored.
