He was allegedly raced away in his bullet-proof black SUV, according to local media. General Musharraf and his lawyers have been in and out of court numerous times to get his bail extended over the 2007 killing of former PM, the death of a rebel leader from Baluchistan in 2006 and for arresting judges in 2007.

His return to Pakistan has been overshadowed by Taliban death threats, the slew of legal cases and a miserable show of support. On Tuesday, he was disqualified from contesting next month's elections over the host of cases dating back to his 1999-2008 rule, effectively ending his ambitions for a comeback at the ballot box on May 11. nnnn G
