ISLAMABAD: Former president Pervez Musharraf has challenged a decision of the Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday, Express News reported.

The Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC), on May 22, had rejected the bail plea of former president general (retd) Pervez Musharraf in the judges detention case.

Musharraf was also accused of conspiracy to murder Bhutto, who died in a gun and suicide attack in December 2007. It is one of three cases he is fighting in the courts since returning home last month after four years in self-imposed exile. He was also charged for imposing emergency and judge’s detention case.
