RAWALPINDI: The Anti-Terrorist Court (ATC) I, Rawalpindi Judge Shaukat Kamal Dar on Monday ordered to confiscate other four plots of former military dictator Pervez Musharraf in Benazir Bhutto murder case. The court has also ordered to ‘enter into register’ the file of BB murder case in this regard.

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Inspector Muhammad Azmat presented full details of Musharraf’s property having three plots in DHA Karachi and one in Islamabad. The court confiscated all four plots of Musharraf in Benazir Bhutto murder case.

The court has already confiscated moveable and immoveable properties of former military dictator in BB murder case. But, FIA had told the court that Musharraf yet having some other properties in the country which were not confiscated. On this, the court had directed to present full details of other properties of Musharraf for confiscation.

The court had already confiscated Musharraf’s eight properties in Pakistan. These include a house in Karachi worth Rs5 million, a plot at Khayaban-e-Faisal Phase 8 worth 1.5 million, a plot in DHA Karachi worth Rs1.5 million, a plot in DHA Phase II Islamabad worth Rs750 million, a plot in Lahore worth Rs6 million, a farmhouse at Islamabad Chak Shehzad worth Rs6 million.

He also has bank accounts at Askari Bank, Rawalpindi, NBP Rawalpindi, Habib Metropolitan Bank Pindi Cantt, Bank Alfalah Blue Area Islamabad, Askari Bank GHQ Branch Rawalpindi, NBP Super Market Islamabad, Union National Bank Super Market and HSBC London. There is an estimated amount of $20 million in foreign banks and Rs1.25 million in national banks.

As Musharraf had been declared a proclaimed offender, the ATC then initiated a process for attachment of his moveable and immoveable properties.

The trial of Benazir murder suspects had commenced in January 2008. However, the government in 2009 ordered a fresh probe into the assassination. Subsequently, a JIT of the FIA implicated the ex-military ruler Musharraf.
