Musharraf’s non-bailable warrant ‘could not be executed’

Lahore: A report submitted to an additional district and sessions judge stated that the non-bailable arrest warrants against former president retired Gen Pervez Musharraf in the Lal Masjid cleric murder case could not be executed.

According to the Dawn, the submission of the report is part of a process initiated earlier this month by ASDJ Pervaizul Qadir Memon to declare Musharraf a ‘proclaimed offender’.

The report was submitted before the court during the proceedings of the Abdul Rashid Ghazi murder case and the report states that police officials visited Musharraf’s Chak Shahzad residence to execute his non-bailable arrest warrants, but he was not present.

According to the report, security officials deployed at the residence’s main gate informed the police that Musharraf was not residing there, but had been living in Karachi for the last couple of years.

In September 2013, Aabpara police registered an FIR against Musharraf under the direction of the Islamabad High Court where Haroon Rashid, the son of the deceased, had filed a petition seeking legal action against the former military dictator for launching a military operation against Lal Masjid in 2007.
