Bhutto killing accused shines in secondary school examination
Islamabad, Aug 2: One of the accused in the 2007 assassination of former Pakistani premier Benazir Bhutto has come out with flying colours in secondary school certificate examination, securing third position while writing the exam from a Rawalpindi jail.
Abdul Rasheed Ahmed alias Abdul Rahim Tarbi, one of the five accused in the case, secured 848 marks out of a total of 1,050 in the test conducted by the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education of Rawalpindi, according to results announced on Monday.
Ahmed is currently being held in Adiala Jail along with four other accused.
He is a resident of a village at Batagram in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.
Ahmed was studying in a madrassa in Akora Khattak when he was arrested with three others in connection with a terrorist attack at Kamra in Punjab in January 2008.
Aitzaz Shah, another accused in the Bhutto assassination case, too is studying in the third grade of Islamic education.
"The jail administration provided teachers and other facilities to (Ahmed) after he expressed his willingness to complete his studies," said Mohisn Raffique, superintendent of Adiala Jail.
The jail administration will reward Ahmed for his achievement, he said.
Bhutto was killed by a suicide bomber shortly after addressing an election rally in Rawalpindi in December 2007. IANS
