Pakistan has formed a high-level committee to investigate the Emergency rule former military ruler Pervez Musharraf had imposed, interior minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan said on Thursday.

Musharraf, who faces high treason charges for abrogating the constitution during his 1999-2008 rule, imposed Emergency rule in November 2007 and suspended the constitution, reports Xinhua.

He had also placed dozens of top judges under house arrest after they refused to take oath under his Provisional Constitutional Order.  

The interior minister told the National Assembly that a four-member panel was made up of senior officials of the Federal Investigation Agency.

Nisar said the committee will keep the ministry informed about its investigation and submit its report within the shortest possible time.
