Islamabad, Jan 9 (UNI) Pakistan government may bring all those persons under investigation whom former prime minister Benazir Bhutto had blamed for attacks on her.

''We will put this matter under consideration,'' Dawn newspaper quoted interior ministry spokesman Javed Cheema as saying in Islamabad.

Ms Bhutto, shortly after returning to the country from exile, had reportedly written a letter to President Pervez Musharraf hinting that some influential persons, including Intelligence Bureau chief Ijaz Shah and former religious affairs minister Ejaz-ul-Haq, wanted to kill her and if she died these people should be held responsible.

Asked if forensic experts could find people behind the assassination, the spokesman said the Scotland Yard team had both forensic experts and investigators and it could trace the killers and their masterminds.

He said the investigation into the tragic event outside Liaquat Bagh was in progress and the British team was assisting the probe.

Mr Cheema said, ''We should wait for the results of the investigation which the government will share with the people.'' About the identification of the suicide bomber, he said forensic investigation was under way and the bomber was yet to be identified.

He said there was no pressure on the investigation team and its members were freely conducting the exercise.

''The government is extending full cooperation to the Scotland Yard team and it can investigate any person required for the probe,'' he said.
