    FIA names Musharraf as accused in BB case


    * Tells court police officers were complying with orders of former president

    * Court will be requested to declare Musharraf proclaimed offender if he fails to appear in court

    Staff Report

    RAWALPINDI: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Monday named former president Pervez Musharraf as “an accused” in an interim criminal charge sheet in Benazir Bhutto assassination case.

    The FIA also submitted the interim challans of former city police officer (CPO) Saud Aziz and former Rawal Town Superintendent of Police Khurram Shehzad in an anti-terrorism court with record of BB’s BlackBerry that was recovered from them a few days ago. The officials were arrested in connection with Benazir Bhutto’s assassination.

    The FIA counsel, Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali, submitted that the court would be requested to declare Musharraf as proclaimed offender if he fails to appear before it.

    When the court asked why Musharraf was named as an accused, Zulfiqar submitted that the investigators had tried to contact him for questioning at his London home, but as yet there had been no response from him.

    He said Musharraf’s name was included in their investigation report in the light of what the two police officials, Aziz and Shehzad, told investigators.

    The counsel claimed that both the police officials were complying with Musharraf’s orders.

    As per the BlackBerry record allegedly recovered from the officials, Benazir neither received nor made any call from it on December 27, 2007 after 3pm and even made no contact with Asif Ali Zardari. The mobile record was being used as evidence in the case.

    Earlier, Aziz, in his statement, claimed that the order to change security in-charge of Benazir Bhutto was given by Musharraf and the crime scene was washed on his orders soon after the incident.

    Malik Waheed Anjum, counsel for the accused, told the court that the statement of the then SSP (operations), Yaseen Farooq, three years after the incident was an attempt to save the BB’s security adviser.

    Anjum said there was no convincing evidence against the accused upon which the officials could be detained. He said Aziz and Shehzad were kept on a 24-day physical remand but the investigation team was not able to produce any substantial evidence against them.

    In April 2010, a UN panel blamed the government of Pervez Musharraf for failing to provide adequate security to BB and said investigations were hampered by intelligence agencies and other officials who impeded “an unfettered search for the truth”.

    Its another political stunt done by Zardari just to bring PMLn on its drowning boat. Adding Mushi name just to bring big victorious smile on Nawaz face. And eventually Nawaz will act like fool another time.
    Zardari political trap might work another time.
    PPP desperately need PMLn support for economic policies. Pakistan is totally on verge of economic collapse. Just because of corruption.
