Islamabad : Former President Pervez Musharraf, currently detained over several high profile cases, may leave Pakistan a day ahead of Nawaz Sharif’s election as the premier to visit his ailing mother in Dubai.
Musharraf could leave for Dubai today in the evening to see his 95-year-old mother, who has been admitted to hospital after developing a “serious health problem”, The News daily quoted its sources as saying.
The sources were quoted as saying that an application for bail would be taken up by courts today and Musharraf would ask the court to allow him to travel to Dubai immediately to visit his mother.
Musharraf’s request for bail in a case over the killing of Baloch nationalist leader Akbar Bugti in a 2006 military operation would be taken up by another court on Thursday, a day after Sharif assumes the office of Prime Minister.
However, the report quoted sources in the Interior Ministry and the office of the Director General for Immigration and Passports as saying that there was no truth in reports about Musharraf being allowed to travel abroad unless the apex court issues an order for the same.
