07 October, 2012
RAWALPINDI: A special anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi on Saturday directed officials concerned to investigate source of income of Sehba Musharraf, wife of former president Pervez Musharraf.
The ATC issued the directive during the hearing of a petition against the freezing of Musharraf's bank accounts. During the hearing, Sehba's counsel, Ilyas Siddiqui, said that Pervez Musharraf had "gifted" the Chak Shehzad farmhouse to Sehba two years ago.
Responding to which, Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Prosecutor Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali inquired as to why Musharraf was still registered as the farmhouse's owner in the Capital Development Authority records if he had "gifted" it to his wife.
Furthermore, the FIA prosecutor said the former military ruler had been declared an absconder and possessed a total of 16 bank accounts, of which seven were joint accounts.
After hearing arguments, the court issued a directive calling to investigate source of income of Sehba and adjourned the hearing until October 20.
