Pakistan People’s Party challenges verdict of Benazir Bhutto murder case in LHC

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) on Monday has challenged the verdict in former Prime Minister (PM) Benazir Bhutto murder case in Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi bench.

According to details, PPP leader Latif Khosa filed the petition against the decision, stating that Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) didn’t fulfill legal requirements.

The petition further revealed that reports of United Nations and Scotland Yard were neglected while announcing the decision.

On August 31, ATC had announced the verdict in Benazir Bhutto murder case after nine years and declared former president Pervez Musharraf absconder.

The court had directed to forfeit the property of Musharraf while it also sentenced former Rawalpindi CPO Saud Aziz and former Rawal Town SP Khurram Shahzad to 17 years in prison, and fined them Rs5 lac apiece.

Furthermore, the court also released the other five suspects, who were nabbed in this case, over lack of evidence against them.
