Lahore: A Pakistani court on Tuesday summoned Attorney General Maulvi Anwar-ul-Haq to present the federal authorities' stance on a petition demanding the removal of former President Pervez Musharraf's name from all government records.

A bench of the Lahore High Court issued the summons in response to the petition filed by former president Rafiq Tarar, who asked the court to direct authorities to delete all orders issued by Musharraf from government documents.

He argued that Musharraf had not been elected through proper Constitutional means.

The court summoned the Attorney General to clarify the government's stance at the next hearing on May 18.

Musharraf, who quit as President in 2008, has been living in self-exile in Britain.

An anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi has issued an arrest warrant for him after investigators alleged he was not cooperating in the probe into the 2007 assassination of former premier Benazir Bhutto.
