QUETTA: Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif said on Friday that former military dictator Pervez Musharraf committed serious crimes and he must be tried as per law of the country.

Addressing  media persons in Quetta on Friday, Nawaz Sharif stated that Inspector General Police Islamabad should be questioned over how Pervez Musharraf managed to escape from court.

“If Musharraf is not arrested immediately it would be violation of court order”, he added.

He said military dictators should be tried as a common criminal who commits any crime. “Nobody is above the law”, Nawaz Sharif said.

The PML (N) chief stated that nobody should be allowed to undermine the sanctity of courts and everyone has to bow down head before court.

Regarding Balochistan situation, Nawaz Sharif expressed concern over the situation in Balochistan and held Pervez Musharraf responsible for the prevailing unrest in the country’s resource-rich province.

He said that writ of the government should be ensured at all cost. Sharif said that if elections were not held the situation would further worsen.
