“He was charged with murder, criminal conspiracy for murder and facilitation for murder,” public prosecutor Chaudhry Azhar said at the anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi hearing the case.
“The charges were read out to him in the court. He denied the charges. The case has been adjourned until August 27 for evidence to be brought,” Azhar added.
Benazir Bhutto – wife of President Asif Ali Zardari – flew back to Pakistan and got killed in a terrorist attack during Musharraf’s tenure. Bhutto was warned against threats from several terrorist groups but she remained adamant to actively take part in the general election of 2009.
“These charges are baseless. We are not afraid of the proceedings. We will follow legal procedures in the court,” Musharraf’s lawyer Syeda Afshan Adil said.
