Hearing in judges’ detention case postponed

The hearing of former military ruler Pervez Musharraf’s bail plea in the judges’ detention case which was scheduled to take place on Wednesday was postponed, local media reported.

The postponement took place due to the absence of anti-terrorist court (ATC) special judge Kausar Abbas Zaidi who is currently suffering from typhoid.

Moreover, Rizwan Abbas, Musharraf’s counsel in the judges’ detention case, has been replaced by Ilyas Siddiqui.

The bail application was filed on May 4.

The case is one of three against Musharraf in Pakistani courts. He is also accused of involvement in a conspiracy to murder Benazir Bhutto in 2007 and over the 2006 killing of Baloch nationalist leader Akbar Khan Bugti.
