Karachi bloodshed: Pak court summons Musharraf
Islamabad: Former president Pervez Musharraf has been directed to appear before the Sindh High Court on April 07 for violence in Karachi on May 12, 2007, a media report said on Friday.
The Sindh High Court issued notice to Musharraf to appear before it April 07 in the May 12 bloodshed case, reported Geo News.
The formation of a larger bench was also requested to hear the case.
Over 50 people were killed and more than 100 injured on May 12, 2007, in clashes in Karachi. The victims were activists of opposition parties who were rallying in support of Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, who had been suspended on March 09 by Musharraf, who was then president.
