General Pervez Musharraf has been formally arrested in relation to the Benazir Bhutto murder case.
Al Jazeera’s Kamal Hyder, reporting from Islamabad, said that Musharraf will remain at his Chak Shahzad farmhouse residence but will be produced at the anti-terrorist court in Rawalpindi on Friday.
“The Musharraf case has many implications given the fact that the country is less than two weeks away from election,” he said.
“It will be the responsibility of the new elected government to deal with this important issue.
“He has admirers no doubt. Many of the powerful political parties were all on board with the former military ruler.”
