The supreme court of Pakistan has directed former president, General (r) Pervez Musharraf to submit his reply on whether he would return to Pakistan or not, by October 11th.

Hearing a case regarding the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) on Tuesday, the court remarked that the former president would not be arrested until he appears before the supreme court.

A three-member bench headed by the chief justice, Mian Saqib Nisar also assured the counsel for Musharraf, Akhter Shah that Rangers would be deployed for safeguarding the former president.

Shah argued that too many cases have been filed against Pervez Musharraf upon which the top judge remarked that the apex court would summon the record of each and every case, clarifying the ‘Musharraf should return as he is a valiant commander’.
