ISLAMABAD: Former militar ruler Pervez Musharraf was on Friday remanded into custody of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in the Benazir Bhutto murder case.
The remand which is to last until April 30 was ordered by the Rawalpindi anti-terrorist court which has been hearing the case pertaining to the assassination of the former premier.
Musharraf is to remain at his farmhouse residence at Chak Shahzad during the period of his physical remand.
Earlier on Thursday, the FIA had formally arrested Musharraf and had interrogated him in the case. The agency had taken the step after securing permission from the ATC.
However, the retired general had expressed lack of confidence in the joint investigation team (JIT) constituted by former interior minister Rehman Malik to investigate the case.
