`Benazir Bhutto crime scene washed after collecting evidence`
Islamabad: Two main witnesses in former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto’s murder case have told the Anti-Terrorism Court that the crime scene was washed off after all necessary evidence were collected.
District Emergency Officer Dr Abdul Rehman and Firefighting Officer Ghulam Muhammad Naz appeared before Special Judge of ATC Chaudhry Habib-ur-Rehman for cross-questioning.
They stated that if the crime scene had not been cleansed immediately, the law and order situation would have worsened there, the Express Tribune reports.
According to the paper, they said that it had become standard procedure to wipe crime scenes of bomb blasts and suicide attacks within 90 to 105 minutes to avoid public provocation.
Naz further said that when he reached the site of Benazir’s murder, police and security officials were busy procuring evidence.
Dr Rehman informed the court that there was no negligence as all evidence was gathered with proper care.
According to the paper, he warned that that the law and order situation in the city would have worsened if the pools of blood and debris had not been removed from the scene immediately.
