Pakistan’s former military ruler Pervez Musharraf was on Thursday rushed to the ICU of a naval hospital after he developed high blood pressure and fainted.

The 72-year-old ex-commando-turned-politician was admitted to the Pakistan Navy Ship Shifa or PNS Shifa, a multi-specialty naval medical treatment facility.

Last month, Musharraf was acquitted by an anti-terrorism court in the 2006 murder case of Baloch nationalist leader Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti, the first major relief to the ex-military ruler entangled in several high-profile cases.

He came to power in a bloodless coup in 1999, deposing then-prime minister Nawaz Sharif. Facing impeachment following elections in 2008, Musharraf resigned as president and went into self-imposed exile in Dubai.

The ex-army chief is facing a slew of court cases after returning from five years of self-exile in Dubai to contest the general elections in 2013 which he lost.
