The medical board also recommended the former president to have his physiotherapy conducted on daily basis. Musharraf has reportedly been advised by his doctors to go abroad for his spinal cord treatment, as it will not be possible
in Pakistan.

The retired general has been shifted to his residence in Clifton, under tight security and is being examined by doctors including a cardiologist.

Meanwhile, Pakistan reportedly ranks among the top countries with most number of bomb attack cases. The country reports roughly two major bombings per day.

Iain Overton, policy director of the London-based Action on Armed Violence (AOAV) says that the attacks have made Pakistan one of the most dangerous places in the world. The country has the third highest homemade bomb and suicide blast rate in the world
