According to the details by court correspondent SHC judges Justice Azhar and Justice Shahnawaz was hearing the case on Thursday when they reserved the judgment.

Earlier, the attorney general of Pakistan Salman Butt presented the federal government’s stance that they cannot risk allowing Musharraf to travel abroad amid high value cases against him.

However, Barrister Farogh Naseem maintained that doctors have recommended backbone surgery to Musharraf and he needs immediate medical assistance abroad.
