ISLAMABAD - Former president retired Gen Pervez Musharraf is suffering from an unknown disease, media report has revealed.

He is "growing weaker rapidly" due to an unspecified illness.

He cannot return to Pakistan to face the treason case against him just yet, according to All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) leader Dr Muhammad Amjad.

On March 31, 2014, the former dictator was indicted for suspending the Constitution on Nov 3, 2007. He, however, left the country in March 2016, for Dubai to "seek medical treatment" and hasn't returned since.

Musharraf has since been declared a proclaimed offender, with a special court now considering ways to extradite him.
