ISLAMABAD - A local court Wednesday adjourned the hearing of Ghazi Abdul Rasheed murder case against former military ruler Pervez Musharraf without any proceedings since the judge was on vacations.
However, the court maintained its order regarding the appearance of Musharraf before the court on September 18 the next date of hearing in this matter.
Hearing of the case was to be conducted before additional district and sessions judge Wajid Ali but it was deferred since the judge was on vacations.
On the previous hearing, the court had summoned former president to appear before the court after his counsel submitted Musharraf’s medical report in which doctors had advised him not to travel for three weeks.
Musharraf’s medical certificate was prepared by five doctors of Agha Khan Hospital Karachi and advised him to avoid travel. Musharraf’s counsel had maintained before the court that Musharraf would come immediately, if doctors permitted him to travel and government took appropriate measures to provide security to his client.
It is pertinent to mention here that the court had summoned the former military ruler for 16 times but he did not turn up even a single time. Now, the court will take up this matter again on September for further proceedings in this regard.
