ISLAMABAD: The Benazir Bhutto Murder case may be in doldrums after former president Pervez Musharraf has gone abroad, legal experts say.

Former president was nominated as key accused in BB murder case by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in 2010, while former deputy inspector general of police Saud Aziz and Senior Superintendent of Police Khurram Shahzad had been nominated as accused. The Anti Terrorism Court was expected to issue summons to the accused in coming weeks to record their statements.

American citizen and a close friend of the late Bhutto, Mark Seigal, has already recorded his statement in the case holding Musharraf responsible for hurling threats at her, before she returned to the country. Musharraf has denied the allegation saying it could be the figment of Seigal’s imagination.
