Former Punjab chief minister Pervez Elahi has now been included in the investigation of Benazir Bhutto’s assassination, Express News reported on Monday.

Express News correspondent Qaiser Shirazi said that Elahi’s statement will be recorded this week while a statement from former prime minister Shaukat Aziz will also be recorded.

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had earlier investigated former president Pervez Musharraf in relation to the case, who pointed towards Rehman Malik.

“Rehman Malik was responsible for Benazir Bhutto’s internal security… she was assassinated following a lapse in internal security,” an FIA source earlier quoted the former president as saying.

Meanwhile, the FIA joint investigation team has prepared a set of 75 questions for Musharraf to answer in the case.

    This is all a hoax. Who can harm a General in Pakistan, specially an ex-President. Everybody knows there is no way he can be implicated. The real cases where he could be proven guilty have been swept under. Why does not someone charge him of killing thousands in the illegal Kargil war, or for overthrowing a democratically elected Government and then usurping power and acting as a Dictator for 10 years.Recommend

    Former Dy PM should also be questioned about electing Pervez Musharraf ten times in uniform. Will he reverse his stance?

    Asif Ali Zardari should also be asked by FIA about his speeches in which he said that he knows the murderers!

    Kargil is a disputed area. How a war in Kargil is legal or illegal? If it is a illegal war then India occupied Kargil illegally. Indian should no business to poke their nose in our internal affairs.

    Those who washed the crime scene with high pressure hoses must be interrogated. In addition the Mush govt’s claims that she died by banging her head against the sunroof of the SUV should be cross-examined. When HH’s phone record can be be investigated from the US why did they not investigated the calls to and from BB? Last but not the least instead of finding and bringing the facts out why did the govt of Mush started a campaign of misinformation and character assassination? All should be investigated and there should be no sacred cows. The whole truth must come out.

    I am so annoyed that during the World Judicial Conference, no one asked CJ about releasing the terrorists and convicting the innocents. World didn’t ask CJ about the pending cases against him and his family.
