I am not frightened of anyone: Musharraf

05 January, 2014

ISLAMABAD: Former Military Ruler General (retired) Pervez Musharraf said that he did not get scared but people were frightened of him.

Talking to his medical attendant, former President Pervez Musharraf said that no soldier of the country was frightened of death and his funeral would also be held in Pakistan, adding that he will not leave the country, reported a private TV channel.

Meanwhile former president showed signs of recovery and he walked a little in his ward last night, after which he was shifted to military hospital's VIP ward from the ICU.

The former military ruler is under treatment for heart problems. He was taken to the hospital with chest pains on Thursday while on his way to face treason charges in a special court in Islamabad.

His spokesman Major General (retd) Rashid Qureshi confirmed Musharraf's recovery and said doctors collected more blood samples Saturday morning and few blood reports had been prepared.

A seven-member medical board constituted for Musharraf's treatment has yet to decide whether or not the former army chief be referred for medical assistance abroad.

The board has held consultation with doctors in US and UK and an initial report has been shared with them, sources said.

His possible cardiac arrest ignited speculations about his exit from Pakistan.
