The Interior Ministry on Monday has allegedly warned that former president General (Rtd) Pervez Musharraf could be targeted on his way to court tomorrow, Express News reported.

A letter sent by interior ministry to Inspector General (IG) Islamabad and other security agencies claims that opponents have planned to assassinate the former president. The ministry has asked authorities to beef up security around the former president to avoid any untoward incident.

The ministry also hinted at fears of a repeat attack which saw former Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer killed.

Musharraf is scheduled to appear before a special court on Tuesday in his treason trial.

Musharraf’s counsel in treason case Ahmed Raza Kasuri has argued that former president would not appear before the court as his life is in danger.

@Ch. Allah Daad:

What ill-gotten money? Quite easy to throw this bit around without an ounce of proof. What if I say the same about your assets and money? How do you disprove me and prove Musharraf has committed financial corruption?

Not everybody is about gathering money for their next seven generations. The Army gave their Chief quite a lot, he did not have to go collect ill-gotten wealth.

How many months/years does it take to put Musharraf on trial? He deserves his day in court and Pakistan deserves closure on this issue.
