'Annoyed' Zardari wants comprehensive probe into hosing down of BB murder site

Islamabad, May 6 (ANI): Dissatisfied over the work of the special three-man fact finding committee, which was constituted to probe the hosing down of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's assassination site, President Asif Ali Zardari has reportedly expanded the timeframe within which the committee has to complete its investigations.

Although the committee's report has not been made public, sources privy to the issue said that the committee has given a clean chit to former Military Intelligence (MI) chief Major General Nadeem Ijaz, which has purportedly irked Zardari.

It may be noted that Ijaz was held responsible for ordering his subordinates to wash off the crime scene at Rawalpindi's Liaquat Bagh, where Bhutto was killed in a gun and bomb attack on December 27, 2007.

Sources said that Zardari has also expressed dissatisfaction over the 'limited' task given to the three-member committee instead of being asked to conduct a comprehensive investigation to expose the planners, abettors, financiers, facilitators and killers, and all those who were a part of the conspiracy to kill Bhutto, The Dawn reports.

According to some political analysts, one of the primary reasons of Zardari's annoyance over the findings of the committee was that all fingers would be pointed towards himself if lower rank officials continue to get clean chits in Bhutto's murder case. (ANI)
