Former Pak President Pervez Musharraf arrested in the Lal Masjid case
Muhammed Rizwan, senior police official from Islamabad said that the former president was put under house arrest in a case involving the military operation on an Islamabad mosque. "We will present him before a court on Friday," he said.
According to reports, a complaint against Musharraf was registered last month in the Lal Masijd case, where he was personally responsible for the deaths of more than 100 people when he ordered commandos to storm the masjid in 2007.
