RAWALPINDI: Former President Gen Pervez Musharraf (retd) has been declared absconder in Benazir Bhutto assassination case, Geo News reported on Monday.
He would be declared proclaimed offender if he fails to appear before the court.
Interim charge sheet into BB murder case was presented in Anti-Terrorism Court Rawalpindi. FIA counsel informed the court that former president Pervez Musharraf has been included as accused in the charge sheet, adding that FIA had been trying to investigate him but all in vain, therefore, he has been declared absconder.
He further stated that both police officials Saud Aziz and Khurram Shehzad were complying with the orders of Pervez Musharraf.
Meanwhile, counsels have concluded their arguments on Saud Aziz and Khurram Shehzad’s bail plea, and the court has reserved the verdict in this regard and it would be announced soon.
