The Supreme Court earlier today heard a case filed by Musharraf in 2015 against the rejection of his nomination papers in the 2013 general elections, at its Lahore Registry.

Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar ordered the former president to return to the country by 2pm on Thursday. "The verdict will be announced in compliance with the law upon Musharraf's failure to follow the orders," he remarked.

The apex court noted that it was not bound to comply with any conditions set forth by Musharraf.
