ISLAMABAD: Just moments after Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf passed through the Faizabad flyover, an explosion took place near the same flyover on Thursday, media reported.
Musharraf was being shifted to a farmhouse in Chak Shehzad from AFIC hospital when the incident occurred.
According to police sources, the possible target of the explosion was Musharraf but the former president escaped it just by moments and now he is safely moved to Chak Shehzad farmhouse.
Nobody was hurt in the blast.
The bomb was fixed in a drainage pipe near Faizabad flyover with ½ kg of explosives.
The blast was intense as it left one foot deep crater at the explosion site, police said.
Musharraf was admitted to AFIC hospital on January 2, 2014 and after spending three months under medical care, he has been shifted to his house safely.
