Islamabad/IBNS: Former Pakistan President General (retd) Pervez Musharraf is unwell and he is currently undergoing treatment at a hospital in Dubai city, media reports said on Tuesday.

According to sources, Musharraf, who has been residing in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for a while now, felt under the weather Sunday night and was admitted to the hospital, reported Geo News.

The former ruler was set to undergo various tests in this regard, the sources added. 

Musharraf's close aide and the ex-chairperson of the All Pakistan Muslim League (APML), Dr Muhammad Amjad, told the news channel the former president was rapidly becoming weaker due to an unknown disease, which is why he was unable to return to Pakistan to face the treason case. 

Late last month, the law ministry had rejected an application seeking details of the legal team hired to prosecute the former president on treason charges and the fees paid to them, saying it was a classified matter, reported Geo News.

In his career, Musharraf took over as the Chief of Army Staff on Oct 6, 1998 at the age of 55 years and one month.

He served as the chief till Nov 28, 2007.

Musharraf has had the longest military career spread over 45 years, seven months and nine days. In 2001, as President, he had himself extended his tenure as Army Chief, reported The News International.

He had also served as the Muslim majority countries 10th president from June 2001 to August 2008.
