A special court here that is hearing high treason charges against former president Pervez Musharraf deferred his indictment Tuesday and adjourned the hearing till Friday. Musharraf's defence lawyers said the special court's jurisdiction should be decided prior to the former president's indictment, reported Geo News. The court will announce its verdict whether Musharraf should be tried in a military court in the next hearing. Earlier Tuesday, Musharraf appeared before the three-member panel, headed by Justice Faisal Arab, for the first time to avoid a possible arrest, after the court strictly ordered him to appear.
