Islamabad, Apr.16 (ANI): The UN enquiry commission’s report regarding former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s assassination may pave way for another ‘proper’ investigation into the December 2007 gun and bomb attack, a close aide of President Asif Ali Zardari has said.
The 65-page UN report has blamed the then Musharraf government of ‘deliberately’ failing to probe the attack, saying the tragedy could have been averted if adequate security arrangements would have been made.
It also found that the investigation into Bhutto’s death was severely hampered by intelligence agencies and other government officials, ‘which impeded an unfettered search for the truth.’
Presidential spokesman Farhatullah Babar said the report backed up the Pakistan People”s Party”s belief that Musharraf or his allies were responsible for Bhutto”s death.
Farahnaz Ispahani, one of Zardari’s close aide, said that following the UN’s report, the government is contemplating a proper police investigation and ‘possible penal proceedings.’
The PPP government is expected to issue a detailed reaction over the inquiry report later today (Friday), The Dawn reports. (ANI)
