A team of British anti-terrorism police arrived in Pakistan to investigate the cause of death of twice former Prime Minister of Pakistan Mohterma Benazir Bhutto.

The team arrived on the request of Pakistan Government to help dispel "conspiracy theories" about Bhutto`s death at an election rally on December 27,2007.

The government has blamed Al-Qaeda in assessination of Mohterma Benazir Bhutto. The government has taped a discussion of Al-Qaeda Commander Baitullah Mehsud, but he denied his involvement in the assessination by the sentence "I strongly deny it. Tribal people have their own customs. We don`t strike women".

Bhutto`s husband Asif Ali Zardari blamed the government and the Pakistan Muslim League for the carnage. He quoted Pakistan Muslim League (PML-Q) as the murder league(Qatil League) and blamed Inter Services Intelligence(ISI) in Bhutto`s assassination.

But Musharraf denied that he or Pakistan`s powerful intelligence agencies had either mounted a cover-up or been involved in the killing.

On the Other side Chaudhary Pervez Ellahi demanded in a public meeting that Soctland Yard team should also include Mohterma`s husband Asif Ali Zardari in Bhutto probe case. He said it should be considered who got benefit after Bhutto death.
