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.

This week has gone from bad to worse for Musharraf, who seized power in a military coup in 1999 and spent nearly a decade in power before being forced to step down in 2008.
