ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has decided to get involved in the Benazir murder case, Express News reported Thursday.

PPP has appointed former Punjab governor and PPP Secretary General Sardar Latif Khan Khosa as the advocate for the party.

He submitted his advocacy license and has contacted the Anti-Terrorism Court for copies of the case’s previous proceedings.

Background

Bhutto was killed in a gun and suicide bomb attack after an election rally, weeks after she returned to Pakistan from years in self-imposed exile.

The government at the time blamed Tehreek-e-Taliban militants and Musharraf has said he warned her of the danger she faced.

In August, ex-military strongman Pervez Musharraf was charged with the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and was indicted by a Rawalpindi court.
