ISLAMABAD, (Dawn): In the judges’ detention case, the special anti-terrorism court (ATC) of Islamabad on Saturday extended the judicial remand of former military ruler Pervez Musharraf for 14 days, DawnNews reported.

Judge of ATC’s special court Kausar Abbas Zaidi heard the case.

During the hearing, the court was informed that Aamir Nadeem Tabish was appointed as the new public prosecutor of the said case.

Furthermore, Musharraf’s counsel Ilyas Siddiqui informed the court that Advocate Chaudhry Mohammad Aslam Ghumman, plaintiff of the case, had announced his decision to withdraw his petition but had not submitted a written notification to the court.

Subsequently, the court extended Musharraf’s judicial remand to 14 days and adjourned the hearing to June 1.
