RAWALPINDI: Seven accused including former president General (retired) Pervez Musharraf has been indicted in the Benazir Bhutto assassination case on Tuesday here, our sources reported.

General (retired)Pervez Musharraf was brought to the Rawalpindi Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) from sub-jail in Chak Shahzad in stiff security arrangements.

ATC Judge Chaudhry Habibur Rahman was hearing the case here.

During the hearing, the eight pages charge sheet was read to him, which Pervez Musharraf denied. He was chaged for murder, terrorism and under explosives Act, sources said.

Pervez Musharraf was indicted on three counts over the 2007 murder of the opposition leader Benazir Bhutto, a public prosecutor said. "He was charged with murder, criminal conspiracy for murder and facilitation for murder," Chaudhry Azhar told AFP.

The court after denial of the framed charges by Pervez Musharraf sought evidences from the prosecutor and adjourned the hearing until August 27.

Saud Aziz, Khurran Shahzad, Abdul Rashid, Sher Zaman, Rafaqat Hussain and Husnain Gul were the other accused also indicted.


Reader Comments:


An indictment today in a Pakistani Courtroom against Pervez Musharraf in the BB Case is more than ludicrous. It would place the former President in direct alliance with those it is known carried out the attack/assassination of BB, the late Baitaillah Mehsud... the "at that time leader" of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP)!

The most guilt, if any, that might be attributed to the good General would be neglect in not providing adequate "government security" for BB!

He certainly played no direct role in either the planning (or) the act itself.

Let Musharraf retire, he was a patriot who ALWAYS acted in the nation's best he saw them!
