Probe report into Benazir's killing ready: Malik
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Islamabad, Dec 27: The probe into the killing of former Pakistan premier Benazir Bhutto has been completed and a report will be presented at the next meeting of the top leadership of the ruling PPP, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said today.
"The investigation report is with the joint investigation team and it will be presented at the next meeting of the central executive committee of the PPP," he told the media at Naudero in southern Sindh province.
Malik was in the region with other top Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leaders for events marking the third anniversary of Bhutto's assassination. Bhutto was killed by a suicide bomber after addressing an election rally in Rawalpindi on December 27, 2007.
The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) is totally independent and working in a transparent manner to probe Bhutto's killing, Malik said.
People who want to destabilise the country pose a great challenge to the government and the menace of the Taliban will be rooted out, he said.
Critics of the PPP-led government have said it has done little to uncover the elements involved in planning and executing Benazir's assassination despite commissioning a probe by a United Nations panel.
