Islamabad, Apr.20 (ANI): Pakistan Information and Broadcasting Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira has said the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) government is committed to bring the masterminds of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's murder to justice.

Interacting with media persons after inaugurating a new building of the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) here, Kaira said following the UN commission's inquiry report, which blamed the then Musharraf regime of failing to provide adequate security cover to Bhutto, all those responsible for her assassination would be booked at any cost.

"Whosoever is found involved in killing Mohtarma would be punished under law no matter where residing," The News quoted Kaira, as saying.

Kaira also blamed the then Musharraf government for not providing a fool proof security cover to Bhutto during her election rally at Rawalpindi's Liaqat Bagh, where she was killed on December 27, 2007, saying the PPP government would 'not spare criminals who deprived the people of Pakistan of a great leader.'

"Martyrdom of Benazir Bhutto is not only the loss for Pakistan but for the whole world," he added.

Earlier, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said action against Musharraf in Bhutto's assassination case would be taken after 'concrete' evidence is gathered against him. (ANI)
