Musharraf's involvement in Benazir Bhutto's assassination

A three member United Nations' Commission was set up at the behest of Pakistani Government to inquire into the unfortunate assassination of former Prime Minister of Pakistan - Benazir Bhutto.

The U. N. Commission has held Pakistan's military government headed by Pervez Musharraf responsible for "not adequately protecting" Benazir Bhutto. The present regime in Pakistan is also accused of obstructing the U. N. team's investigation. The official contention that Taleban leader Baitullah Mehsud was behind the slaying of BB was also found to be dubious.

The report goes on to say that the police investigation never really tried to get to the bottom of the slaying fearing involvement of Pakistani intelligence agencies. It also speaks of police destroying evidence.

Pakistan's interior minister is accused of commandeering vehicle meant for BB on the fateful day, thereby leaving her vulnerable.

It also draws a possible link between the independent position taken up by BB on improved relations with India and her assassination.

It'll be interesting to see what action is taken by the Pakistani government on this report.
