Islamabad, Feb 8 (UNI) Former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto was killed due to a fatal head injury caused by a ''violent'' collision between her head and the escape hatch area of her armoured vehicle triggered by a blast, according to the Scotland Yard.

The British detectives in a report submitted to the Pakistan Interior Ministry today said the Pakistan People's Party leader did not suffer any gunshot wound as was being claimed earlier by government agencies.

Benazir was assassinated on December 27 last year in Rawalpindi, following which President Pervez Musharraf sought help from the British government in probing the attack on the former prime minister. British experts spent more than two weeks to come out with their findings.

The report also concluded that there was only one suspect involved in the attack.

''In essence, all the evidence indicates that one suspect has fired the shots before detonating an improvised explosive device.

At the time of the attack this person was standing close to the rear of Ms Bhutto's vehicle. The blast caused a violent collision between her head and the escape hatch area of the vehicle, causing a severe and fatal head injury,'' the report said.
