Islamabad, Sept. 2 (ANI): A case has been registered against former president Pervez Musharraf for the murder of Abdul Rashid and his mother during the Lal Masjid operation.
The Islamabad High Court (IHC) stopped Station House Officer (SHO) Aabpara Police Station, Qasim Niazi from leaving the courtroom, asking him to leave only after registering a case against Musharraf.
According to the Express Tribune, after the case was registered, he left the courtroom.
IHC Justice Noorul Haq Qureshi said that not registering a case, despite the court's orders falls under contempt of court.
On Friday, the IHC summoned Niazi over non-compliance with the court's orders to look into whether a case can be registered.
Qureshi had directed the SHO to appear before the court on September 2 in response to a contempt application filed by Haroonur Rashid Ghazi.
Ghazi, the son of slain Lal Masjid cleric Abdul Rasheed Ghazi, had filed a case against the police for non-compliance with court orders and sought criminal proceedings against the police official.
