Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf due to security concerns will leave United States for London tomorrow.

Musharraf was among the passengers of a London-bound Virgin Atlantic flight, who were asked to vacate the aircraft after a bomb scare at the New Jersey airport on Wednesday.

According to sources, security officials have arrested a man, who reportedly belongs to the Middle East due to illegal stay in United States.

After a thorough check, security officials gave the go-ahead to all passengers to board the flight.

However, Musharraf was not allowed to resume his journey, and he has been asked to stay at a local hotel and will leave for London tomorrow.

Virgin Atlantic management has declined to comment on the incident, saying: "We cannot tell whether the plane was stopped owing to Musharraf or else."
