Islamabad: The custody of Pakistan former president Pervez Musharraf has been extended till October 29 by a court on Friday, said an investigation officer.

The former Army chief was arrested for his alleged involvement in the killing of radical Lal Masjid top cleric Abdul Rashid, during a 2007 military operation.

As per the officer, the investigation into the case is still going on.

Musharraf, who is also facing murder trials in the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and a Baloch tribal leader, was earlier granted bail in both the cases.

He returned to Pakistan this year after ending a long self-exile in 2008.

The trial of the former dictator is going on at his villa which is located on the outskirts of Islamabad. He is not being held in jail with other common criminals.
