ISLAMABAD: Pakistan former president Pervez Musharraf on Friday challenged non-bailable arrest warrant issued against him by a local court in Abdul Rasheed Gazi murder case.
Musharraf’s counsel Malik Tahir Mehmood submitted an application at the Islamabad High Court (IHC) challenging the local court’s decision. The lawyer mentioned in the application that Musharraf is ill and is waiting for his medical report.
In addition, Mehmood prayed before the IHC to set-aside arrest warrant issued against Musharraf by the Sessions Court.
Yesterday, Additional Sessions Judge Wajid Ali had issued non-bailable arrest warrant due to Musharraf’s continuous absence from proceedings of the case.
