Former Pakistani military ruler Pervez Musharraf has lashed out at his accusers following his arrest in a case involving his decision to fire senior judges while in power.

Police arrested Gen. Musharraf overnight following his dramatic escape from a court in Islamabad on Thursday after a judge rejected his bail and ordered his detention.

Gen. Musharraf called the allegations against him “politically motivated” in a message posted on his Facebook page after his arrest.

Police presented Gen. Musharraf before a different court in the capital on Friday morning, where the judge ordered the police to keep him in custody for two days and then present him before an anti-terrorism court.

Police returned him to his home on the outskirts of Islamabad, where he holed up after his escape, and held him under house arrest.
