An additional sessions court on Saturday in Abdul Rasheed Ghazi murder case granted exemption for today to former military ruler Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf and summoned him in its next hearing on March 15, DawnNews reported.
The capital city’s additional sessions court judge Wajid Ali heard the case.
During the hearing, Musharraf’s lawyer requested for permanent exemption for Musharraf in the cleric killing case.
Subsequently, the court decided to discuss the matter of permanent exemption for Musharraf from court appearances in its next hearing on March 15.
The Lal Masjid operation was a 2007 government crackdown during Musharraf’s tenure on the controversial pro-Taliban mosque in Islamabad, which ended in a bloody eight-day siege killing at least 58 Pakistani troops and seminary students.
