Islamabad, Apr.20 (ANI): Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that action against former President General Pervez Musharraf in the slain Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's assassination case would be taken after 'concrete' evidence is gathered against him.

While the UN's fact finding team, in its probe, has blamed the Musharraf regime for Bhutto's assassination, Malik said the tragic incident took place due to the Punjab government's failure to provide full security cover to Bhutto.

Malik said Pakistani officials are still probing the former premier's murder, The Dawn reports.

It may be noted that the UN commission had also accused Pakistani intelligence agencies and other authorities of hampering the probe against those who masterminded the gun and bomb attack.

Meanwhile, insiders said that the government is contemplating action against Musharraf's close relatives, who have been indicted in the UN report.

According to sources, the Presidency is in consultations with various authorities to initiate action against Major General Nadeem Ijaz and Major General (retired) Nusrat Naeem. (ANI)
