Islamabad, Apr.28 (ANI): Pakistan Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira has said the report into the criminal investigation of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's assassination would be ready by the next month, and that those held responsible for the leader's murder would definitely be brought to justice.

Talking to reporters here, Kaira said the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) is committed to prosecute the perpetrators of the crime.

"Whosoever is found involved in the assassination of Benazir would be punished under law. The PPP led coalition government does not believe in politics of victimisation, however, it would not spare the criminals who deprived Pakistan of a great leader," The Daily Times quoted Kaira, as saying.

Kaira, however, clarified that former President General Pervez Musharraf, who has been indicted by the UN Commission's report over Bhutto's assassination, would not be arrested unless charges against him are proved.

He said Musharraf would be accorded proper security and protocol in the country.

"If he were to come to Pakistan, it would be the state's responsibility to protect him and ensure his security," Kaira said. (ANI)
