ISLAMABAD — As former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf thought he was in the clear, he was hit with a new legal challenge on Thursday when police arrested him in a case involving a 2007 crackdown on a pro-Taliban mosque.

Only hours before Musharraf submitted about $19,500 in bonds to the Supreme Court and was granted bail in the last of three legal cases.

Muhammad Rizwan, a senior official of the Islamabad police, said: “We have put Gen. Musharraf under house arrest in a case involving a military operation on an Islamabad mosque.”

The arrest suggests there is disagreement within the Pakistan government over whether to prosecute Musharraf or let him leave the country.
