Abbottabad, May 15 (ANI): A local court here while declaring former President General Pervez Musharraf an 'absconder' has directed authorities to confiscate his property.
The District and Sessions Judge Abdul Mateen directed the police to impound Musharraf's property and submit its report to the court till May 17.
On Thursday, the Peshawar High Court's Abbottabad bench had upheld a decision by the lower court nominating Musharraf as the main accused in a case concerning the mysterious disappearance of a scientist who worked for the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC).
Scientist Attiqur Rehman's family had claimed that he was picked up by intelligence officials on June 25, 2004, the day he was about to get married.
A case naming Musharraf as the main accused was filed in the lower court in this regard. The district and sessions judge had then ordered the local police to record the statement of Sadiqur Rehman, Attiqur's father.
Following a prolonged trial, the judge issued an order on October 30, 2009 directing the authorities to declare the main accused as a proclaimed offender. The order also called for confiscation of the property of the accused, The Dawn reports. (ANI)
