Rawalpindi: Five Benazir murder suspects remanded by court
RAWALPINDI: An anti-terrorism court on Thursday remanded five suspects in custody for their alleged involvement in the assassination of former premier Benazir Bhutto in a gun-and-bomb attack.
The accused Aitzaz Shah, Sher Zaman, Abdul Rasheed, Rafaqat, and Hasnain Gul were sent to Adiala jail on a four-day judicial remand in the Benazir murder case.
Besides the attack on Benazir, Rafaqat and Hasnain Gul are also accused of involvement in three other suicide attacks in Rawalpindi two in Royal Artillery (RA) Bazaar that targeted a secret agency’s officials, and one at a police checkpost near Army House.
Anti-Terrorism Court Number I Judge Chaudhry Habibur Rehman remanded the accused in custody.
Rafaqat, the son of a retired headmaster, and his brother-in-law Hasnain Gul have confessed to providing logistics to suicide bombers in the four blasts in Rawalpindi.
They were arrested in January on information gleaned from the investigation of Aitzaz and Sher, who were arrested in Dera Ismail Khan and confessed that they knew the people who had planned and executed the attack on the former premier.
