Pakistan News: The Anti-Terrorist Court (ATC) in Rawalpindi on Tuesday sent Rawalpindi’s former city police officer Saud Aziz and SP Khurram Shahzad on a 14-day judicial remand in connection with the Benazir Bhutto assassination case.
The case was heard in the ATC judge Rana Nisar Ahmed. Saud Aziz and Khurram Shahzad submitted their bail applications in the court. The court, subsequently, sent the two to jail on a 14-day judicial remand and directed the jail authorities to produce them before the ATC on February 14.
Benazir Bhutto was assassinated three years ago in a gun and suicide attack after addressing an election campaign rally in Rawalpindi, on December 27, 2007.
In April 2010, a UN panel accused the government of failing to provide Benazir with adequate protection and said investigations were hampered by intelligence agencies and other officials who impeded “an unfettered search for the truth”.
