Pressured to blame Musharraf for Benazir Bhutto’s assassination: Ex-Pak cop

Rao Anwar, a former high-profile but notorious police officer in Karachi, has claimed in a rare interview that he didn’t subscribe to the report of the Joint Investigation Team( JIT) constituted to probe the murder of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto on purpose, Geo News reported.

Anwar said he didn’t essay the document because he was being dragooned to interlace former Pakistan President and retired General Pervez Musharraf, by the also Interior Minister Rehman Malik. The minister added the cop and wanted Musharraf named without recording the former President’s statement or interrogating him.
” I didn’t subscribe( the JIT report) as Malik dragooned me to charge Musharraf,” Anwar over the phone, adding,” I asked for substantiation but he didn’t have any.”

The cop said he’s also ready to make the statement under pledge, Geo News reported.
These days, Anwar is out on bail in cases where he’s indicted of being involved in the murder of 400 people in fake police hassles, including Naqeeb Mehsud, a youthful and pushing model.

Bhutto was boggled on December 27, 2007, in a self-murder bombing in Rawalpindi. The main suspect in the case was Ikram Mehsud, who was said to be in charge of the operation and had been named in the court as the alternate self-murder bomber. Baitullah Mehsud was named as the architect of the attack.
Anwar said that another terrorist group, led by Tayyub Mehsud, was involved in the October 18, 2007 attack on Bhutto’s fleet in Karachi, which left 180 people dead, Geo News reported.

” They( Bhutto’s Pakistan People’s Party) could have arrested both Ikram and Tayyub and answered both cases,” Anwar said. But the PPP government of 2008 didn’t show important soberness in the cases, he added.
” They( the cases) were politicized further than dealt with on merit,” he said.

The former bobby
also raised dubieties over Malik’s part and believed that the former Interior Minister should have been probed in the case as the head of Benazir Bhutto’s security. Yet, he no way was.
Anwar is considered a close confidante of former President Asif Ali Zardari, Geo News reported.
