PPP to challenge Benazir Bhutto murder case judgment

ISLAMABAD: President of Pakistan People’s Party (PPPP) Parliamentarians Asif Ali Zardari has announced that verdict of Benazir Bhutto murder case will be challenged, Samaa reported.

Speaking to media after offering Eid-ul-Azha prayers, Zardari said that the party was not satisfied with the judgment of the Anti Terrorism Court.

He added that party is yet to receive justice since the past 10 years.

An ATC in Rawalpindi declared former president and military dictator General (retd) Pervez Musharraf proclaimed offender in the case.

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.

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

Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the verdict was disappointing and unacceptable and announced that his party will explore legal action.
