Islamabad, Apr.17 (ANI): Following the UN enquiry commission's report over former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's assassination, which held the then Musharraf regime responsible for the killing, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has once again raised the demand for the former general's trial.

PML-N spokesperson Parvaiz Rashid said the UN report has made it apparent that Musharraf was directly involved in Bhutto's assassination, and now the government must not waste any time to start the former President's trial.

"The nation wants to know the facts and reasons as to why the government is still not ready to start the murder case proceedings," The News quoted Rashid, as saying.

He also questioned the government's move to spend billions of rupees on the probe without any substantial action against those who masterminded the deadly attack on Bhutto on December 27, 2007.

The UN enquiry commission's report has blamed the then Musharraf government of 'deliberately' failing to probe the December 2007 gun and bomb attack, saying the tragedy could have been averted had adequate security arrangements been in place.

"The Musharraf government failed to provide foolproof security to Ms. Bhutto which ultimately allowed a lethal assault on her. The security breach left wide-open room for an attack to happen," the report said in its opening remarks. (ANI)
