Three generations of my family have come to the SC seeking justice: Bilawal

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari
PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, while addressing a press conference outside the SC today, said that he wished to become a party in the murder cases of Zulfikar and Benazir Bhutto so that he could follow up on progress in the cases.

“Three generations of my family and the PPP have come to the Supreme Court seeking justice,” he said.

Bilawal said when his father was president, he had sent a reference to then chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry about the Zulfikar case which, he said, has not been heard until today.

“I thought I should become party in that case so I can follow up,” he added.

Bilawal claimed that Benazir’s security cordon was “sent away” on the day of the attack. “Box security was given to Shaukat Aziz when he was PM and to Chaudhry Shujaat when he was PM,” he said.

“But Benazir Bhutto ─ who was not only targeted on October 18, and everyone was saying her life was in danger ─ her security cordon was, on that day, sent away. They were sent away from the scene and could not provide that security cordon to her and left her a sitting duck for terrorists.”

“After the incident, the crime scene was washed of evidence with a fire hydrant hose. The same thing happened on Oct 18.”

“You may remember when terrorist attacks took place during Musharraf’s era, the crime scenes were protected for days and each piece of evidence was collected. Here, they washed the crime scene,” he claimed.
