Pervez Musharraf

Islamabad: An anti-terrorism court in Pakistan has declared former military ruler Pervez Musharraf a fugitive in ex-Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s assassination trial, ordering his property confiscated, as per sources.

The court sentenced two former senior policemen to 17 years each in prison and acquitted five others in the case.

Musharraf was charged with Bhutto’s 2007 assassination in 2013, but has been in self-imposed exile in Dubai ever since a travel ban was lifted three years later. The court official said he had “absconded”.

Bhutto, a two-time premier, was killed in a gun and bomb attack in Rawalpindi on December 27, 2007, when she came out of a park after addressing an election rally.
