Musharraf refuses to leave Pakistan

PTI, Lahore :
Pakistan’s embattled former military dictator Pervez Musharraf has refused to leave the country on “medical grounds” until he is given “clean chit” in high treason and other cases, according to a close aide.
Contrary to the impression that “Musharraf’s illness drama” has been staged to prepare a ground to send him abroad under a deal, his friends suggest that all efforts to “persuade” him to leave the country have failed to bear fruit as the Nawaz Sharif-led government wants to “rid” 70-year-old Musharraf of as early as possible.
