Chief Justice Ather Minallah of the Islamabad High Court late Saturday ordered the probe in response to a petition from the daughter of former minister Shireen Mazari.
Minallah questioned the decision by officials in Islamabad to allow police from a Punjab provincial district to make the arrest in the capital.
Mazari, who served in the Cabinet-level position under former Prime Minister Imran Khan, had been detained by police near her Islamabad home earlier in the day.
Fawad Chaudhry, former information minister in Khan’s administration, alleged that Mazari — the senior leader in Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party — had been politically targeted by the new administration of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif under the guise of a land dispute dating back to 1972.
Hours after Mazari's arrest, Chief Minister of Punjab province Hamza Shahbaz ordered her release and late Saturday she was brought to the Islamabad court for an urgent hearing. She was then released.
Mazari has been critical of Sharif’s government on Twitter since Khan’s government was toppled in a no-confidence vote in Parliament last month. Khan's party lawmakers resigned from the body's lower house in protest and Khan is mobilizing supporters through public rallies across the country to pressure the government into an early election.
The hearing of the case had commenced around 10am but was adjourned till noon after the ATC had ordered the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief to appear before the court for his bail plea hearing.
The court directs law enforcers to apprehend Musharraf to ensure the death sentence is carried out, but if found dead beforehand, "his corpse (should) be dragged to D-Chowk, Islamabad and be hanged for three days.
Qureshi was received by Pakistan's Consul General in Dubai and Northern Emirates, Ahmed Amjad Ali, along with senior officials from the Pakistan embassy and UAE foreign ministry, at Dubai International Airport.
Khan has had a number of cases registered against him since a parliamentary vote ousted him from power last year. The cases range from gathering illegal funds for his political party to inciting violence against state officials.
According to the report, Dubai includes 68,400 individuals, each of whom has a wealth of more than a million dollars, 206 millionaires, each of whom has a wealth of 100 million dollars or more, and 15 billionaires.
The bus route from Muscat to the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi, passing through Al Ain city will be back to service from next month after it had been suspended temporarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This came during His Highness' reception of the Dutch Prime Minister today at Qasr Al Shati in Abu Dhabi, where His Highness welcomed Rutte and expressed his hope that the visit would contribute to advancing UAE-Netherlands relations in key fields.
