After the formation of the government, the PPP requested the United Nations to conduct an inquiry into Benazir’s assassination in accordance with its old demand, which was accepted. Asif Ali Zardari had claimed on the first anniversary of Benazir Bhutto’s assassination that he knew who the killers were. But, in his speech on the second anniversary of the assassination after becoming president, he did not say anything about it.
Nine years eight months later, the special anti-terrorism court had ruled in Benazir Bhutto’s murder case. Judge Asghar Khan, while delivering the verdict, acquitted five accused, including police officers, former CPO Rawalpindi Saud Aziz and former SP City Khurram Shehzad, ordering a total of 17 years imprisonment while declaring former president, Pervez Musharraf a fugitive.
