Rawalpindi: Warrants out for 2 in BB case
RAWALPINDI: A trial court issued on Saturday non-bailable arrest warrants for former Rawalpindi city police officer Saud Aziz and SP Khurram Shahzad in the Benazir Bhutto assassination case.
Anti-Terrorism Court-III Judge Rana Nisar Ahmed, deciding an application of the Joint Investigation Team of the Federal Investigation Agency about summoning of the two police officers for alleged negligence on their part for security of the former prime minister, issued warrants to ensure their presence at the next hearing on Dec 9.
The investigation team has requested the court to call the two officials and question them about their role in hosing down the crime scene outside Liaquat Bagh, where the PPP leader was assassinated, and halting her post-mortem.
The JIT had almost copied findings of the Punjab police alleging the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan had planned and killed the PPP leader.
The investigators, while clearing all other government functionaries, have put the two police officers at the disposal of the court.
