Islamabad: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz chief Nawaz Sharif expressed his views regarding the recent Musharraf saga, saying if any common man would have done what the former president did, then he would’ve surely been behind bars right now.

Sharif stressed that there is a huge disparity in the implementation of laws on poor and the ruling elite in Pakistan.

His remarks came in reference to Musharraf’s escape and then house arrest, the Express Tribune reports.

Nawaz questioned “why was he escorted home safely by Islamabad police? Because he was an Army chief earlier?”

This is clearly contempt of court on police’s behalf, he added.
