The former dictator added that he is being called a traitor, and that his act was treason despite serving the Pakistan's army for 45 years and fighting two wars.

According to Dawn News, the indictment cited imposition of November 3, 2007 emergency as one of the charges against Musharraf, which led to the violation of Article 6 of the Constitution.

It also included the deposition of superior court judges and the suspension of fundamental rights among the list of charges, the report said.

The charge sheet, which Musharraf signed, also refers to his oath-taking under the Provisional Constitution Order (PCO).

The former military ruler has pleaded not guilty, saying he would stand his ground.
