RAWALPINDI - The anti-terrorism court of Rawalpindi Saturday framed charges against seven accused including two police officers in the assassination case of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto. The seven accused including two police officers pleaded not guilty when the judge informed them about the charges of murder. The judge, however, went ahead with framing the charges and asked the prosecution to produce witnesses in the court from November 19 onward. During the in-camera trial held at Adyala Jail, ATC No 1 Judge Shahid Rafique framed charges against seven accused including former City Police Officer (CCPO) Syed Saud Aziz, SP Rawal Town Khurram Shehzad, Sher Zaman, Aitzaz Shah, Rafaqat Gul, Hussnain Gul and Abdul Rahseed. The ATC judge charged the two police officers with breach of security as they removed the security box of Benazir Bhutto, ordered the hosing down of crime scene and thus destroyed the proofs. Also they did not order post mortem of any innocent citizen killed in the blast. It has also been charged that they were involved in the Benazir Bhutto assassination plan. While the five others were accused of criminal conspiracy for bringing the suicide bomber from the tribal belt in the northwest and keeping him in a house in Rawalpindi. The charges framed against them by the court include terrorism, murder, attempted murder and becoming part of the murder conspiracy. According to the investigation team probing the case, accused Hussnain Gul was the handler, who brought the suicide bomber from Waziristan and kept him in his house in Rawalpindi. Rafaqat Hussain and Abdul Rasheed were alleged that they knew about the conspiracy and concealed the same. Aitzaz Shah, the juvenile accused and suicide bomber, and his handler Sher Zaman were also accused of the same charges. However, all the seven accused denied the charges, terming them cruel allegations. Even accused Sher Zaman refused to sign the charge sheet. The judge, after framing the charges, directed the prosecution to produce the witnesses in the court and postponed the hearing of the case. During the trial, prosecutors Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali and Chaudhry Azhar presented their arguments while advocate Malik Rafique and Barrister Sultan also appeared on behalf of the accused. Former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf, currently living in self-imposed exile in Britain and Dubai, is also wanted in the Benazir Bhutto assassination case. The prosecutor said Benazir was killed in a bomb-and-gun attack because president Musharraf had not provided enough security to her. The court in August ordered the confiscation of Musharrafs property and the freezing of his bank accounts in Pakistan while Begum Sehba Musharraf has already filed an application in the court to release the property of her spouse. The judge, however, deferred till Nov 19 the hearing in this application without any proceedings. Agencies add: The ATC court did not indict Musharraf in the case. Prosecutor Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali said the court would deal with Musharrafs issue later.
