Islamabad, Jan 8: Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf said his government was committed to finding out the facts and bring to justice those responsible for the assassination of former premier Benazir Bhutto.

Talking to the team of detectives of Scotland Yard, the President assured them of full cooperation by Pakistani investigation agencies. He hoped that the technical and forensic expertise of the Scotland Yard would supplement the efforts of investigation agencies of the country, the Associated Press of Pakistan reported. Mr Musharraf also thanked the British government for its prompt response to Pakistan's request for assistance.

Reuters adds, He said, ''The government was committed to unearthing the evidence, finding out the truth and bringing those responsible for this heinous crime to justice.'' Bhutto's Pakistan People's Party has dismissed the official account of her killing and called for a UN investigation.

It has also said it has no faith in the investigation.

''The Scotland Yard team had only been asked to probe the cause of death and not the perpetrators, financiers, executioners or organisers of the conspiracy,'' the party said.

Asked last week if those people who Bhutto named in a letter to him would be questioned, Mr Musharraf said investigators would not be allowed to conduct a ''wild goose chase''.
