ISLAMABAD: A local court in Islamabad on Friday rejected the request of Islamabad police seeking physical remand of former president Pervez Musharraf in the murder case of Lal Masjid cleric Abdul Rasheed Ghazi.

The police had filed a petition in the court of Judicial Magistrate seeking five-day remand of Musharraf over the case pertaining to the alleged murder of Ghazi Abdul Rasheed and his wife during the Lal Masjid military operation.


The court rejected the police request saying that the remand could not be granted without producing the accused in the court.

On Thursday, Islamabad police arrested the former president in the above said murder case, hours after the Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered to release him after his bail plea was accepted in a case pertaining to veteran Baloch politician Nawab Akber Bugti’s murder.

A case against Musharraf over the murder of the Abdul Rashid Ghazi during the Lal Masjid operation that occurred in 2007 was registered last month by police after receiving an order from the Islamabad High Court.
