Islamabad: Pervez Musharraf's sprawling farmhouse was declared a sub-jail on Friday after the former Pakistani president was arrested, a media report said.

Musharraf was arrested Friday, a day after he fled from the Islamabad High Court which had ordered his arrest in a 2007 case related to the detention of senior judges. A media house reported that Pervez Musharraf's farmhouse at Chak Shahzad on the outskirts of Islamabad was declared sub-jail on Friday.

He appeared in the court of a judicial magistrate in Islamabad after which he left for his farmhouse. Musharraf's bail was cancelled in the judges' detention case by Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui on Thursday.

In a written judgement, the court ordered: "He (Musharraf) be taken into custody and dealt with in accordance with law."
