Islamabad, Oct 20: The Pakistan government has asked former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto to disclose the names of the suspects she had mentioned during her press conference, if she has proof of their involvement in Thursday's blasts.

Ms Bhutto, while addressing a Press Conference yesterday, had said, ''I have written a letter to the President of Pakistan in which I have nominated three persons in case I am assassinated near my homes in Karachi and Larkana'', but did not mention their names.

''We don't know who the three people are, if she has some information about them she should disclose it in public,'' Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao said.

''The government had advised the PPP leadership not to prolong the procession because of security threats.'' However, no formal contact was made with Ms Bhutto to delay her plan to return home, he said.

All the possible arrangements to ensure the security during the rally were made in coordination with the PPP leadership including the provision of a jammer.

He however said jammer was useful only when the act is carried through remote control adding this device cannot block the manual operation.
