Musharraf becomes the butt of twitterati's jokes after he flees court

Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf on Thursday became a twitter trend after he fled from the premises of the Islamabad high court after his bail application in the judges detention case was cancelled.

Local TV broadcast footage of the dramatic scene in which Musharraf jumped into a black SUV and escaped as a member of his security team hung to the side of the vehicle.
