FIA says TTP behind BB’s assassination
ISLAMABAD: As reported by the Dawn News on Tuesday, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has completed its probe into the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and held the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) responsible for her death in a gun-and-bomb attack, sources in the FIA told Dawn News on Monday.
The FIA is likely to submit the investigation report before Anti-Terrorism Court on Oct 30.
According to the sources, the FIA’s investigation team was reluctant to submit the challan before the court because it could not complete its investigation regarding three absconders in the case, Abdur Rehman, Saddam and Faiz Mohammad.
The investigation report, however, is now saying that the three absconders were killed in a military operation in tribal areas.
Five of the accused, who are all members of TTP, have already been arrested. They are Rafaqat, Hussain, Sher Zaman, Aitzaz Shah and Abdul Rashid.
The head of FIA’s team, Khalid Mehmood, told Dawn News that the investigation had not been completed, but he did not deny that its report was being presented before the court on Oct 30.
The fresh investigation report has accused slain TTP chief Baitullah Mehsud of masterminding the murder of Ms Bhutto.
