Benazir Bhutto murder case: Ex-DIG handed 15-years jail; Musharraf declared absconder

ISLAMABAD: An Anti-Terrorism Court in Rawalpindi has announced the verdict of Benazir Bhutto murder case on Thursday.

ATC Judge Asghar Khan announced the judgment of the high profile case on Thursday.

The court declared former president and military dictator General (retd) Pervez Musharraf proclaimed offender in the case.

ATC has also ordered the authorities to seize all of Musharraf’s assets.

ATC has also handed a 17-year imprisonment sentence to ex-deputy inspector general (DIG) Saud Aziz and ex-superintendent of police (SP) Khurram Shahzad.

According to FIA officials Saud Aziz was a facilitator of the crime as he did not provide security to Benazir Bhutto.

Saud Aziz’s lawyer contended in the court that conducting postmortem of Benazir was not the responsibility of former CPO Saud Aziz, adding Zardari had not allowed him to carry out postmortem of BB.

Five suspects, allegedly affiliated with Taliban, namely Rafaqat, Hasnain, Rasheed Ahmed, Sher Zaman and Aitzaz Shah were set free due to lack of evidence.

PPP chairperson and former PM Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in a suicide attack on December 27, 2007 after addressing a public meeting at Liaquat Bagh Rawalpindi.
