ISLAMABAD: After the refusal of Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, another Supreme Court judge, Justice Nasirul Mulk, has recused from the hearing of the appeal against Islamabad High Court's decision to grant bail to former army chief Pervez Musharraf in the case of detention of judges of superior judiciary after promulgation of emergency in November 2007.

A three-member bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Nasirul Mulk has referred the matter to the chief justice for the formation of a new bench in this case and adjourned the case for indefinite period.

Citing Musharraf as respondent, Advocate Aslam Ghuman has challenged the June 11, 2013 judgement of the IHC allowing after-arrest bail to the former military dictator and deleting terrorism charges from the case.

A division bench of the IHC while granting bail to Musharraf had held that there was no record to determine his role in the detention of over 60 judges after November 3, 2007 emergency.

The appellant has asserted that the IHC order was illegal, unjust and arbitrary and has resulted in grave miscarriage of justice. He said the high court had not followed the dictums of the Supreme Court in their true prospective.

End.
