Islamabad, Apr.20 (ANI): Former President General Pervez Musharraf's close aide Rashid Qureshi reportedly held a secret meeting with Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Information Secretary Fauzia Wahab and discussed the UN enquiry commission's report over former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's assassination, sources have revealed.

According to insiders, during the meeting, which lasted for 40 minutes, both discussed the situation arising in the country following the UN commission's report, which held the then Musharraf regime responsible for Bhutto's death.

The meeting comes at a time when the Pakistan government has announced that it would punish all those blamed for Bhutto's murder.

The PPP-led coalition government has also initiated action against those directly or indirectly linked to the high-profile assassination and named 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.

Both officials are close relatives of Musharraf's spouse.

It may be noted that Ijaz was the Military Intelligence (MI) chief when Bhutto was assassinated.

The UN fact finding commission had blamed Ijaz of directing officials to wash-off the blood stains at the incident site at Rawalpindi's Liaquat Bagh, where Bhutto was killed in a gun and bomb attack on December 27, 2007.

The report also indicts the then Rawalpindi City Police Officer (CPO), Saud Aziz, for acting on orders of Ijaz.

Aziz has especially been blamed for washing of the crime scene and hindering the autopsy. (ANI)
