ATC grants defence request to obtain inquiry report in Benazir murder case


An anti-terrorism court on Tuesday accepted a request of the defence lawyer to obtain an inquiry report in the Benazir Bhutto murder case.

According to a private television channel, the court issued a notice to the Punjab government to make the report available by Feb 9.

Earlier, the Federal Investigation Agency’s prosecutor had opposed the request, however, the court eventually decided in its favour.

The court also adjourned a request to allow key witness and US lobbyist Mark Siegel’s to testify in the case through video conferencing to Feb 9.

In his statement recorded before FIA’s joint investigation team constituted to probe the assassination in 2009, Siegel had accused former president Pervez Musharraf of extending threats to Benazir regarding her safety and security in Pakistan.

Benazir was killed in a gun and suicide bomb attack after an election rally in Rawalpindi on Dec 27, 2007, weeks after she returned to Pakistan after years in self-imposed exile.


  1. Poor Bhutto! even unable to find her killer in tenure of his husband and friends.
    Good show of revenge to justice under democracy also defined by Bhutto too.
