ISLAMABAD The reported informal response from the UN Secretary General to Pakistan that he would not reopen the Benazir Bhutto Inquiry Commissions work has left the top brass of the ruling PPP with greater degree of freedom to pick and choose in finding scapegoats. Well-placed sources informed TheNation on Friday that the PPP rulers are now left with two options firstly that it dumps the murder case for good by putting the blame on late TTP chief Baitullah Mehsud and his associates or secondly it resorts to selected investigation to pick up scapegoats for greater political mileage for the ruling party. Sources said that under the first option the government may follow the legal course and get those already arrested and being tried in connection with assassination of Benazir Bhutto convicted. This, they believed would greatly help the ruling party get rid of the case for good. However, some of them were of the view that this course was quite risky as it involves political implications for the PPP rulers, therefore, they insisted that the government would follow the second option. Sources privy to these developments claimed that the ruling party after deep thinking was already working on this option and had decided to bring the former Director General Brig (Retd) Ejaz Shah to the book in connection with the BBs assassination in late 2007 at Liaquat Bagh, Rawalpindi. This, the informed sources said was allegedly being done by the PPP leadership in a bid to absolve its two powerful federal ministers whose names have been mentioned in the UN Inquiry Commission Report. Informed sources that requested not to be named were of the considered view that the former DG IB who is believed to have left the country and is currently living abroad would soon be brought to the book with the help of Interpol. This is the only way the PPP can reach out to the real perpetrators, a source said, adding that former Interior Secretary Syed Kamal Shah was also likely to be included in the investigation in connection with BBs assassination case. However, sources said that the high-level fact finding committee instituted recently by the Prime Minister Gilani has already given clean chit to some police officials including the former DPO Rawalpindi Saud Aziz. Meanwhile, despite frequent attempts to contact Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik and Secretary Interior were not available for their comments on the future course of investigation. Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi in his recent letter to the UN Secretary General had questioned the credibility and reliability of the report and said the lack of source attribution leads to vagueness and ambiguity in some parts of the report which has undermined its credibility as a fact-finding report.
