ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan has formed a larger bench on Tuesday to hear the Benazir Bhutto murder case even though a second FIR was yet to be registered.
The bench, comprising of five members, will hear the case from next week, whether it is necessary or not.
A three-member bench, headed by the Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, heard the case regarding the registration of another FIR for Benazir's murder.
Earlier the court had noted that a second FIR needed to be registered as the first did not include names of some of the key suspects.
The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had also submitted a final challan in the murder case and nominated former president Pervez Musharraf as the main offender.
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.
