 Pervez Musharraf
Pakistan, April 18: General Pervez Musharraf on Thursday escaped from the Islamabad High Court after the cancellation of his bail application by Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui in the judges detention case. He faces arrest due to bail cancellation.

Musharraf had arrived at the court surrounded by a large contingent of police and immediately after the bail cancellation order he fled in his bullet-proof black car.

Last week, the former military ruler was granted a six-day interim bail after he surrendered before the court. The case is based on an FIR against the retired general registered in August 11, 2009.

The case against Musharraf is for detaining over 60 judges, including Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, after proclamation of a state of emergency in Pakistan in November 2007.
