ISLAMABAD: An abandoned car filled with arms and explosives was found near the Chak Shehzad residence of former military ruler Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf on Tuesday.
The Suzuki Mehran car was taken into custody by security personnel as probe into the incident went underway.
Police said 40 kilograms of explosives, along with two detonators and hand grenades, were found from the abandoned car.
Former president Musharraf is facing life threats from the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) who had set up a special death squad to target former Pakistani president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf upon his arrival.
The All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) chief is under detention on judicial remand at his Chak-Shehzad residence, which was declared as a sub-jail after a court had earlier cancelled protective bail granted to him on April 18 over the judges detention case.
