    A man lobbed a shoe at former President Pervez Musharraf when he appeared in a Pakistani court here on Friday, but it did not hit him.

    The unidentified man hurled the shoe towards Mr. Musharraf while he was leaving the Sindh High Court this morning after obtaining a 15-day extension of his pre-arrest bail in a series of cases.

    The shoe fell a few feet in front of the 69-year-old former military ruler, who was surrounded by security personnel and TV cameramen.

    Footage on TV showed the shoe flying through the air and landing in a group of people in front of Mr. Musharraf.

    It could not immediately be ascertained whether the man was detained.

    Mr. Musharraf, who recently returned to Pakistan after nearly four years of self-exile, went to the court to seek extension of his pre-arrest bail. A bench extended the bail by 15 days.

    This was not the first time that a shoe was hurled at Mr. Musharraf. In 2011, a man tried to hurl his shoe at him when he was addressing a gathering in Britain.

    Angry scenes were witnessed in the court complex as a group of lawyers shouted slogans against Mr. Musharraf. There were heated exchanges between lawyers and Mr. Musharraf supporters.

    Mr. Musharraf’s security guards rushed him out of the court complex.

    HERES A BETTER ARTICLE:

    Karachi: A Pakistani court on Friday extended by 15 days the pre-arrest bail period of Pervez Musharraf in a series of cases in some of which he was a proclaimed offender, but barred the former military ruler from leaving the country.

    A single member bench of the Sindh High Court accepted 69-year-old Musharraf's request for extension of bail, which was granted before he arrived back in the country.

    The court, however, ordered the former president not to leave the country without taking its permission. The pre-arrest bail serves to prevent his arrest for past charges.

    While coming out of the court complex, Musharraf was shoed by a lawyer. Angry scenes were witnessed and people, including groups of lawyers, shouted slogans against him.

    Footage on TV showed the shoe flying through the air and landing in a group of people in front of Musharraf.

    The shoe hurled allegedly by advocate Tajammul Lodhi in the corridor did not hit Musharraf and he was escorted safely out of the court by security personnel. Lodhi was detained and taken to an undisclosed location, the Geo TV reported.

    This was not the first time that a shoe was hurled at Musharraf. In 2011, a man tried to hurl his shoe at him when the Pakistani leader was addressing a gathering in Britain.

    Musharraf had arrived in the court through VIP entrance but as soon as news spread of his presence, the lawyers started protesting and tried to enter the chamber of the Chief Justice. There were scuffles between lawyers and policemen.

    Musharraf was required to appear in person in the court to extend the bail allowance. On March 22, a single-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice Mushir Alam, had granted a 10-day bail period to the former president who returned home on Sunday after being in self-imposed exile since 2009.

    The high court had also granted Musharraf a pre-arrest bail in the Baloch nationalist leader Akbar Bugti and former prime minister Benazir Bhutto murder cases.

    Musharraf, who seized power in 1999 and left Pakistan after stepping down in 2008, is also wanted in the country for conspiracy to murder and illegally arresting judges.

    The anti-terrorism court had declared him a fugitive and issued arrest warrants for him after he refused to cooperate with investigators probing Bhutto's killing. Musharraf, who formed political party All Pakistan Muslim League, intends lead his party in the May 11 polls.

    Stupid shoe thrower... he should be lashed 100 times :whip: for missing his target.

    There should be special rigorous training sessions for this.
