ISLAMABAD: A local court in Islamabad on Wednesday reserved judgment on the bail application of former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf in a case relating to the murder of Lal Masjid cleric Maulana Abdul Rasheed Ghazi.

The verdict will be announced by the court of Islamabad’s additional sessions judge Wajid Ali on November 1.


Earlier, the defence counsel Ilyas Siddiqui argued before the court that the orders to conduct the Lal Masjid operation were not given by Musharraf.

The defence counsel said that the Army had been summoned by the deputy commissioner Islamabad for the operation.
