Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has clarified that he did not strike any deal with former Army chief Raheel Sharif to remove a travel ban on ex-dictator Pervez Musharraf.

A prime ministerial spokesman denied any kind of deal with Raheel Sharif and claimed that “nothing of the sort” happened to allow Musharraf to leave the country.

Mr Musharraf earlier alleged that Raheel Sharif had helped him in leaving Pakistan. He said the Army influenced the civilian government to drop the charges against him.

The former military ruler also said that it was Raheel Sharif who asked the government to stop any kind of pressuring tactics on the judges.

He said that the government stopped pressuring the judges over the charges brought against him after Raheel Sharif’s involvement in the case, adding that all the cases against him were political.
