BB murder case: FIA submits final challan, names Musharraf as main offender

Musharraf has been “intentionally” avoiding court notices issued against him: Challan


Web Desk June 05, 2012

RAWALPINDI: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has submitted a final challan on Tuesday in the Benazir Bhutto murder case and nominated former president Pervez Musharraf as the main offender, Express New reported.

According to the FIA prosecutor, the challan states that Musharraf has been “intentionally” avoiding court notices issued to him and that the hearings should proceed in his absence.

An anti-terrorism court has also accepted the challan for hearing.

Former DG IB Brigadier Ijaz Shah, retired Brigadier Javed Cheema and two American journalists will appear before the court as witnesses against Musharraf.

In the challan, Musharraf is also accused of compromising on Benazir’s security, which made her an easy target for militants.

According to Express News correspondent Qaiser Shirazi, the court can award a jail term between five to ten years to Musharraf for his consistent failure to present himself before the court.

There were few other people named in the FIR where are they? We would like to see Zardari or Shabaz Shariff tried for the death of Salman Taseer.
