Former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf was arrested today, a day after he fled the Islamabad High Court that ordered his arrest.

Police arrested Musharaf from his Chak Shahzad farmhouse, Geo News reported today.

Musharraf Thursday fled from the Islamabad High Court after it had ordered his arrest in a 2007 case and remained closeted in his farmhouse with police blocking access to it.

The Islamabad High Court dismissed Musharraf's interim bail extension plea and ordered his arrest in the case related to the detention of senior judges.
