A Pakistani court on Monday cancelled Pervez Musharraf’s interim bail over the 2007 assassination of former premier Benazir Bhutto,adding to the legal woes of the ex-army chief who is currently being held at his farmhouse.

The Rawalpindi Bench of the Lahore High Court rejected a plea by Musharraf’s lawyer Salman Safdar for the extension of his interim bail.

Safdar had filed an objection against the court’s decision but it was rejected as well .

Musharraf was granted interim bail for a week on April 17. Legal experts said he is likely to face arrest in the assassination case too following the High Court’s decision.

Musharraf has been accused of failing to provide adequate security to Bhutto when she returned to Pakistan from self-exile.
