ISLAMABAD: Pakistani authorities on Saturday directed officials at airports across the country to bar former president Pervez Musharraf from going abroad.

The federal investigation agency directed immigration officials at all international airports to stop the former president from travelling abroad, TV news channels reported.

The FIA formally issued written orders to immigration officials in this regard.

The move came a day after the Sindh high court issued orders that Musharraf could not leave Pakistan without seeking the permission of courts that are hearing cases against him.

The court issued the directive while extending by 21 days the pre-arrest bail granted Musharraf, in connection with several cases.

The former army chief, who ended nearly four years of self-exile by returning to Pakistan on March 24, was declared a fugitive by an anti-terrorism court in connection with the assassination of former premier Benazir Bhutto.
