SC releases convict in Musharraf attack case

Supreme Court orders the release convict in Musharraf attack case!

Rana Tanveer Hussain was awarded life term on the charge of making a life attempt on former president and military strongman General Rtd. Pervaiz Musharraf.

The court rejected the federal and Punjab governments’ appeals against the release of the convict.

A three-judge bench of the apex court headed by Justice Sardar Tariq Masood heard the case.

Lawyer Hashmat Habib appearing before the court said that his client Rana Tanveer had completed his life sentence but he was still in prison and was not released. 

The life sentence is awarded for 14 years while my client has completed almost 20 years in jail, the lawyer argued. 

SC after hearing arguments from both sides announced its decision.

Rana Tanveer was arrested on Dec 31, 2003 in connection with attack on former president Musharraf in Rawalpindi. 

In 2005, the Supreme Court after finding him guilty in the case awarded him life sentence.
