ISLAMABAD: On the directions of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, a notice summoning former President Pervez Musharraf in the Benazir Bhutto murder case has been pasted outside his farmhouse located in the Chak Shahzad area of Islamabad, Express News reported on Tuesday.
The notice asks Musharraf to appear in the Supreme Court on March 22 with documents proving his identity as a Pakistani citizen.
“Yes, I can confirm that a notice has been pasted on the main gate of Musharraf’s farm house,” Sheikh Naeem, a senior police official, told AFP.
The Supreme Court had passed the orders yesterday over the non-delivery of notices to key witnesses and suspects in the murder probe. The court had directed the Registrar’s Office to ensure a speedy process of the delivery to all parties.
A formal application from the interior ministry had also been moved to the Interpol headquarters in France for the issuance of red warrants against the former president. The request was routed through a representative of Interpol in Pakistan.
