RAWALPINDI: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Tuesday submitted a challan against former military dictator Pervez Musharraf in the Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC-I), declaring him prime accused in Benazir Bhutto murder case.

FIA's Deputy Director Khalid Rasool appeared before ATC-I Special Judge Chaudhry Habibur Rehman and presented the charge sheet against the former dictator and listed him as the main accused in the light of a statement recorded by US journalist Mark Siegel. The court directed Musharraf to appear before it on July 2 and adjourned the hearing till the date.

The charge sheet also contained the statements of four witnesses, including that of the US journalist as well as Benazir Bhutto's own statement, in which she had said that Musharraf and three others be held responsible if she was assassinated.

Musharraf has also been accused of hatching a conspiracy to assassinate former prime minister Benazir. While becoming the witness in the case, Mark Siegel in his statement to the FIA's investigation team had revealed that Benazir was disturbed after receiving a phone call from Musharraf in his presence on September 25, 2007.

According to Siegel's statement, Musharraf had warned her that she would be responsible for her own security if she returned before the 2008 elections. Besides, the US journalist had claimed to have a copy of Musharraf's email sent to Benazir.
