LAHORE: The Lahore High Court Rawalpindi bench granted interim bail to former president Pervez Musharraf in Benazir Bhutto murder case, Express News reported on Wednesday.

The bail, valid till April 24, was granted against two surety bonds of Rs0.5 million each.

During today’s hearing, a notice was also issued to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) team.

The court had ordered Musharraf to come in person around 2pm to seek bail.

An anti-terrorism court (ATC) had earlier rejected FIA’s application, seeking separation of Musharraf’s trial from other accused tried in the Benazir murder case.

The court had decided to start fresh proceedings into the case following Musharraf’s return, as he had been declared a proclaimed offender in 2011.
