Pervez Musharraf’s wife Sehba Musharraf on Saturday challenged a court order that declared the former president a proclaimed offender (PO).

According to a private television channel, Sehba filed a petition in this regard in Rawalpindi’s anti-terrorist court.

The petition states that Musharraf was declared a proclaimed offender in a faulty manner and on the basis of invalid sections and provisions.

The petition states that the court had used Section 87 against Musharraf. However, since Musharraf was residing outside Pakistan before the case began, the court should have referred to Section 93 in order to act against him, the petition says. Subsequently, the anti-terrorist court issued a notice to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and adjourned the proceedings to Jan 21.
