Pervez Musharraf faces re-arrest in Lal Masjid case
Zee Media Bureau
Islamabad: Accused of killing cleric Abdul Rashid and his mother during the Lal Masjid operation, Pakistan’s former President Pervez Musharraf has been re-arrested on Thursday after he was granted bail in three other cases by the country`s apex court, as reported.
A case was registered in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) against the former Military ruler after a petition was filed by Haroon Rasheed, the son of Lal Masjid’s Rasheed.
He had alleged earlier that the 70-year-old Musharraf killed his father and grandmother.
In 2007, Musharraf-led-government had carried out Lal Masjid operation to demolish the controversial mosque. The operation lasted for eight days killing more than 50 Pakistani troops and seminary students.
As per the reports, the SSP of Islamabad and the chief of Aabpara Police Station went to his house and arrested him.
Yesterday, the Supreme Court granted Musharraf bail in the case related to the killing of Baloch nationalist leader Akbar Bugti in a 2006 military operation.
The former military strongman is currently being held at his farmhouse on the outskirts of Islamabad, guarded by nearly 300 security personnel, including soldiers and snipers.
