Islamabad: Former Pakistan Prime Minister supremo Nawaz Sharif on Friday asserted that former military ruler Pervez Musharraf will not be spared in treason case.

Speaking to reporters here, Mr Sharif maintained that the trial will be completed indisputably, “if not today then tomorrow or in the coming future.”

He added: “Musharraf can be brought back for inclusion in PTI but no law can bar him from undergoing trial. One day this case has to conclude.”

“Musharraf had raised his fist after addressing Parliament. Where is that action now? Now he has gone abroad,” he criticized.

While bashing Imran Khan, Nawaz Sharif said: “Imran Khan is licking after spitting. He took full benefit of the privileges of that parliament whom he had cursed earlier.”

About caretaker Prime Minister, Mr Sharif said that the matter will be shifted to the parliament if no consensus is made between the opposition and government.

The matter of electing caretaker Prime Minister is likely to be discussed in the parliamentary committee as government and opposition have failed to decide the name.
