A Pakistani court on Monday asked the police to register an FIR against former military dictator Pervez Musharraf for “illegally” detaining 60 members of the superior judiciary after imposing Emergency in 2007, two weeks after the apex court declared his move as “unconstitutional.”

District and Sessions Judge Akmal Raza issued the order after lawyer Aslam Ghuman filed an application in his court asking for a case to be registered against Musharraf, who is currently in Europe.

This is the first time that a court had asked police to register a case against Musharraf.

Several persons, including relatives of people detained, have approached police for registering cases against Musharraf but officials have been reluctant to act.
