IHC rejects plea to dismiss FIR against Musharraf in Lal Masjid case

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday rejected a plea seeking the dismissal of a first information report (FIR) against former military strongman General (r) Pervez Musharraf in Lal Masjid case.

According to details, IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah announced the ruling during the hearing of the Ghazi murder case.

Earlier in May, the Supreme Court had disposed of a suo motu notice related to Lal Masjid and Jamia Hafsa after an assurance by the attorney general and the Capital Development Authority (CDA) that the grievances of clerics would be addressed.

However, the prosecutor stated that there are several issues in the case due to which it cannot be wrapped up.

“The case was not for a plot only. There is an issue of blood money too,” counsel said. To which, Justice Gulzar replied that the session court would be responsible for these issues.
