Apart from this, there are three vehicles; two Land Cruisers and one Corolla under Musharraf's name and four vehicles under his wife's.

In February, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) allowed investigation against former president after which the country's top graft-buster decided to initiate a probe.

An IHC bench comprising Justice Athat Minallah and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb issued the directive over the petition filed by Rahim in 2014. Rahim had consulted the court to seek an investigation into the alleged corruption of the former president.
