ATC Reserves Verdict in Benazir Assassination Case


Rawalpindi (August 30, 2017): Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on Wednesday reserved its verdict in former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto murder case.

The ATC Rawalpindi heard Benazir murder case here. Prosecutor of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Khawaja Asif and the lawyers of the suspects advanced their concluding arguments.

After hearing the concluding arguments of the prosecutors and the defence counsels the judge reserved his verdict.

The verdict will be announced later.

Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in a gun-and-bomb attack outside Rawalpindi’s Liaquat Bagh on December 27, 2007 while Musharraf was president. She was assassinated when she was coming out of Liaqat Bagh after addressing an election campaign rally in the city.

A trial of five suspects, who were arrested by police, started in February 2008 which was later handed over to FIA.

The ATC had indicted former president Pervez Musharraf in the case in February 2011, and in August the same year he was declared a proclaimed offender.

Trial of Musharraf was separated as he was not appearing before the court.
