A three-member bench of the special court, headed by Peshawar High Court Chief Justice Waqar Ahmad Seth has handed death penalty to Gen Parvez Musharraf. The judge took up the high treason case against former military ruler Pervez Musharraf today and handed him the death sentence.
Special court comprising of Justice Seth, Justice Nazar Akbar of the Sindh High Court (SHC) and Justice Shahid Karim of the LHC had announced that it would deliver its verdict in the case today, the government’s prosecutor, Advocate Ali Zia Bajwa, said that they had submitted three petitions today.
Musharraf was born in pre-partition India on August 11, 1943 in New Delhi. He was raised in Karachi and Istanbul. He is the one who led Kargil infiltration, however, without the knowledge of then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Later, there was an Army coup against the Pakistan government. That is when Musharraf became the President of Pakistan. He liked to call himself the CEO of the state.
