Islamabad, April 3: Former Pakistani dictator Pervez Musharraf owns assets worth over Rs 645 million both in his country and abroad but has paid zero tax, it has been said.

The former president recently returned to Pakistan from a four-year-long self-imposed exile in London amid threats to contest the May 11 general elections from Islamabad. He filed nomination papers to contest from N-48 Islamabad and those documents showed that Musharraf's income has increased by Rs 129 million last year, a news report revealed.

The chief of the All Pakistan Muslim League did not pay tax during the last three years.

Musharraf did not mention the source of his income, his plots and the luxurious farmhouse here in the nomination form.

Some of the assets that the former Pakistani president spoke on his form includes cash worth Rs 5, shares worth Rs 1.961 million and furniture worth Rs 6 million. He declared his personal expenses at Rs 8 million.

Musharraf also revealed in his nomination form that there are three FIRs pending against him in three anti-terrorism courts in Rawalpindi, Islamabad and Quetta, which were registered over the last three years.
