Pakistan's former military ruler Pervez Musharraf was rushed to hospital after suffering a “heart problem'' on his way to court for a hearing in his trial for treason, police and an aide said.
The 70-year-old had been summoned to the special tribunal after failing to show up for two previous sessions due to security threats against him.
Jan Mohammad, a senior police official told the court in Islamabad that Musharraf had fallen ill while being transported to the hearing.
An aide to Musharraf, who is facing a series of criminal cases dating back to his 1999-2008 rule, told AFP the retired general was in “bad shape.’’
