RAWALPINDI: The Anti-Terrorist Court (ATC) in Rawalpindi ordered the police to formally question the former police chief of Rawalpindi Saud Aziz and former SP Rawal Town Khurram Shahzad in the Benazir Bhutto murder case.
Aziz and Shahzad will be questioned for their failure to provide adequate security to former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto before her 2007 assassination.
The hearing of the case was conducted in Adiyala jail on Saturday and Aziz and Shahzad also appeared before the court.
The case’s hearing is scheduled to resume on December 18.
Benazir Bhutto was killed in a gun and suicide bomb attack after an election rally in Rawalpindi on December 27, 2007, weeks after she returned to Pakistan after years in self-imposed exile.
