Former prosecutor in the treason case against former president General (r) Pervez Musharraf, Akram Sheikh, was held hostage at his home and threatened with consequences by unknown people.
According to a tweet by journalist Hamid Mir, the senior lawyer had his house broken into by unknown people, who searched it for two hours. Mir added that the people robbed him and before leaving threatened him that if he didn’t mend his ways, they would be back.
According to Samaa, the robbery occurred at Akram Sheikh’s farmhouse in Chak Shehzad. The family was locked in a room while the intruders searched the house.
Akram Sheikh was the head of the former prosecution team in the Musharraf treason case, which was denotified by the federal government in October.
Akram Sheikh had himself resigned in July before the denotification, citing the Musharraf treason case as a reason for threats to his personal safety and that of his family.
