Sessions Judge Wajid Ali Khan accepted the petition to exempt presence of former president Pervez Musharraf from the hearing of Lal Masjid cleric’s murder case for a day and summoned him on March 15.
The court also ordered the police to present an interim challan of the case until the next hearing.
Tariq Asad appeared in the court as lawyer of the Lal Masjid Foundation whereas Akhtar Shah represented Musharraf.
Shah informed the court that his client could appear due to security concerns and should be exempted from the hearing.
The court accepted the plea and summoned Musharraf on March 15.
