Chaudhry Nisar had given a “Safe passage” to Pervez Musharraf

ISLAMABAD: Former Punjab governor Sardar Latif Khosa, who is representing Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari in the Benazir Bhutto murder case, alleged on Wednesday that former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan had given ‘safe passage’ to retired Gen Pervez Musharraf.

Mr. Musharraf is one of the suspects in the Benazir murder case but left the country in March last year after the interior ministry removed his name from the exit control list (ECL) after a three-year travel ban.

An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Rawalpindi had, earlier this year, acquitted five suspects from the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in the same case, but convicted former deputy inspector general Saud Aziz and senior superintendent of police Khurram Shahzad.

Since he absconded, the court has issued perpetual warrants of arrest for Mr. Musharraf and adjourned proceedings against the former military dictator sine die, until his arrest and subsequent appearance before the court.
