US journalist among 6 summoned in Benazir Bhutto murder case
RAWALPINDI: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Saturday summoned six witnesses, including US journalist Mark Siegel, on January 5 in the Benazir Bhutto murder case. ATC judge Chaudhry Habibur Rehman heard the case and summoned the witnesses. Other witnesses include SSP Yasin Farooq, SP Ashfaq Anwar, Professor Dr Musaddiq and the Rescue 1122’s Dr Abdul Rehman.
Meanwhile, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has informed Interpol that the former president of Pakistan, Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf, “wanted to kill former premier Benazir Bhutto” because he considered her a threat to his regime. The FIA’s statement came after Interpol rejected Pakistan’s request to arrest Musharraf. FIA recently dispatched another letter to Interpol, requesting it to arrest Musharraf who currently lives in London. The agency also attached some evidence and Musharraf’s arrest warrants with the letter.
The evidence dispatched with the letter on Thursday included a statement by US journalist Mark Siegel and records of emails sent by Musharraf to Benazir.
