A Pakistani court Friday ordered the police to immediately confiscate former president Pervez Musharraf's assets and submit a report after procurement of assets in three days.

Abbotabad bench of Peshawar High court warned the police of stern action if it failed to submit compliance report within the deadline, the private TV ARY news reported.

Earlier, District and Sessions Judge Abbotabad Abdul Mateen Khan had declared Musharraf as absconder in a kidnapping case and issued orders for confiscation of his movable and immovable property.

The case against the former president was filed by senior lawyer Muhammad Iqbal in March 2009.

The decision of the district court was challenged in Peshawar High Court but Abbotabad bench of the high court upheld the district court's decision.

This was the last notice of the court for confiscation of property of the former president.
