KARACHI, Pakistan, June 15 (UPI) -- Pakistan's former military ruler Gen. Pervez Musharraf has been indicted for allegedly detaining more than 60 judges, officials said.

An anti-terrorist court indicted Musharraf after receiving a report from police alleging that Musharraf detained more than 60 judges after imposing a state of emergency in Pakistan in 2007, Karachi News.net reported Saturday.

Musharraf has denied the charges against him.

Other cases against Musharraf that are still pending include his alleged involvement in the killings of Benazir Bhutto in 2007 and Baloch nationalist leader Akbar Khan Bugti in 2006.
