Pak: SC court adjourns treason case against Musharraf
The apex court rejected a plea to arrest Pervez Musharraf, citing that no formal charges against him had been placed before the court.

Islamabad: The Supreme Court of Pakistan Thursday adjourned for an indefinite period the hearing in the treason case against former military ruler General (retd) Pervez Musharraf, Dawn reported on its website.

The move was taken to hold consultations over the setting up of a special court to hear the case against the former president, the report said.

The apex court rejected a plea to arrest Musharraf, citing that no formal charges against the former president had been placed before the court.

Earlier, Attorney General Munir A Malik submitted the government's line of action in the case, which said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had ordered the Federal Investigative Agency (FIA) to conduct an inquiry into the actions of Musharraf Nov 3, 2007, the day when he had imposed emergency in Pakistan and sacked judges.
