ISLAMABAD: Adiala Jail authorities have formally released General (retd) Pervez Musharraf from his sub-jail today.He was jailed in his Chak Shehzad farmhouse which was declared sub-jail.

Ahmed Raza Kasuri, senior lawyer and counsel for the former military dictator, said that Musharraf’s release was not part of any deal and the ex-president would address a “historic press conference” after his release from the sub-jail.
He claimed that fake cases were made-up against his client.
