Islamabad, Oct 3 (UNI) The Interpol has asked Pakistan government whether former prime minister Benazir Bhutto was still a ''wanted''.

A red corner notice was issued against the former premier living in exile on the request of the Pakistan goverment in January 2006.

The government has decided to revoke charges of corruption and misuse of power against Ms Bhutto, who is also the chairperson of Pakistan People's Party, by promulgating an ordinance.

''It is the National Accountability Bureau that is to decide about the status of the red notice. Although, the red notice had been issued on its instruction, we have not received any directive from the NAB in this connection,'' Dawn quoted Federal Investigation Agency director-general Tariq Pervez as saying.

Ms Bhutto has announced that she will return home on October 18.
