KARACHI: Police has recorded the statement of IG Sindh Shahid Nadeem Baloch pertaining to the Judges Detention Case on Thursday.
IG Shahid Nadeem Baloch told the police team that at the time of detention of judges he was the IG Islamabad Police and he had not received written orders to confine the judges.
He also said that the Islamabad Police had not played any role in the detention.
The investigating police team is trying to keep rest of the information in this regard, under the cover.
The case is based on an FIR against the former president General (R) Pervez Musharraf registered in August 11, 2009 on the complaint of Chaudhry Mohammad Aslam Ghumman advocate.
He had asked the police to initiate legal proceedings against Musharraf for detaining over 60 judges, including Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, after proclamation of a state of emergency in the country on November 3, 2007.
The case is one of three against Musharraf in courts within Pakistan. He is also accused of involvement in a conspiracy to murder Benazir Bhutto in 2007 and over the 2006 killing of Baloch nationalist leader Akbar Khan Bugti.
Musharraf returned to Pakistan in March after nearly four years of self-imposed exile to contest the May 11 general election. NNI
