Pakistan’s ex-military ruler Pervez Musharraf was sentenced to death in high treason case on Tuesday by a special court in Islamabad.

A three-member bench of the special court handed Musharraf death sentence on a long drawn high treason case against him for suspending the constitution and imposing emergency rule in 2007.

Musharraf is in self- imposed exile in Dubai, and has been on trial since 2014. He wasn’t present to comment on the verdict but in the past he had denied the charges.

Pakistan army said in a statement posted on Twitter that the decision was received with “a lot of pain and anguish by rank and file of Pakistan armed forces”.

Many of Pakistan’s army chiefs have either ruled the country directly after coups, as Gen Musharraf did, or wielded significant influence over policymaking during periods of civilian rule.

But Gen Musharraf was the first army chief to be charged with such a crime and the powerful military have watched the case carefully, BBC report said.
