The Pakistani government started to investigate the incident of alleged firing at President Pervez Musharraf's plane in the capital, a Pakistani newspaper DAWN reported Sunday.

The police on Saturday morning detained two men in a house. Some phone calls were made to the house from an apartment in Asghar Mall, Rawalpindi from where a machinegun fired some shots in the air.

Interrogations of five other people suspected to have connections with the attack were also conducted but the police procured no clues, according to DAWN.

Abdul Rashid Ghazi, deputy chief of Lal Masjid said on Saturday he had received a phone call from an unidentified man, alleging that he tried to shoot down Musharraf's plane in revenge for the crackdown on the Lal Masjid.

The police on Friday recovered two anti-aircraft guns and a machinegun fitted with a telescope at a house in Asghar Mall, Rawalpindi near the capital Islamabad.

TV channels reported that shots were fired from a machinegun at the special flight of Musharraf, who was heading to the flood-hit city of Turbat in southwestern Balochistan province.
