Ghazi Abdul Rashid murder case: Court seeks medical report of Musharraf


A local court in Islamabad, while seeking a medical report of former president Pervez Musharraf, on Saturday adjourned the hearing of the Ghazi Abdul Rashid murder case till November 7.

When District and Sessions Judge Pervez Al Qadir Memon took up the case for hearing, the counsel for Musharraf told the court that his client was seriously ill and suffering from backbone pain. He said his doctors had strictly advised him from venturing out so he could not appear before the court.

Counsel for Lal Masjid, Tariq Asad, told the court that Musharraf was just not appearing before the court while he was appearing in many other programmes. He said his medical report had not been provided to the court till this day. After the arguments, the court, while seeking a medical report of Musharraf, put off the hearing till November 7.
