KARACHI: Ninety-five-year-old Zarin Musharraf, mother of former military ruler Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf, arrived in Karachi from Dubai on Tuesday, DawnNews reported.

Musharraf’s mother had earlier been hospitalised in Sharjah after suffering from respiratory issues.

Despite his mother’s serious condition, Musharraf was unable to travel to Dubai to meet her due to his name being on the Exit Control List (ECL) on account of several cases against him. The most notable proceeding against the former president has been the high treason trial over his imposing a state of emergency in the country. The case is being heard by a special court in the federal capital.

After he was indicted in the treason case, the government had offered to bring his ailing mother home from Dubai with it increasingly seeming that the chances of removing the travel ban were slim.
