At the start of the hearing, Musharraf’s lawyer submitted an application to the court trying to get exemption for his client from appearance in today’s proceeding. However, judge Tariq Anwar turned down the asking. The judge issued orders for Musharraf to turn up in the next hearing on April 21 and informed that non-bailable warrants could be released over his non-appearance.

The ex- military leader has been called by the ATC on April 25 in judges’ detention case, and also been ordered to appear on May 3 in Ghazi Abdul Rasheed murder case being heard by district court Islamabad. On Wednesday, the federal govt principally decided not to allow Musharraf visit his ailing mother in Dubai.
