Musharraf wanted to ‘eliminate’ Bhutto considering her ‘threat’: Pak authorities
Islamabad: Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has told Interpol that of former President Pervez Musharraf wanted to eliminate Benazir Bhutto considering her a threat to his rule, it has emerged.
The statement was apparently made after the world police rejected Pakistan authorities’ request to arrest Musharraf, who is currently in exile in London.
According to the Dawn, in September this year, the FIA sent the request to Interpol for the arrest of Musharraf, but the latter rejected it, stating it was moved under political pressure.
The FIA recently dispatched another letter to Interpol, requesting them to arrest Musharraf, a prime accused in the Bhutto murder case.
FIA attached arrest warrants for Musharraf as well as some pieces of evidence, with the letter.
The evidence dispatched with the letter on Thursday included a statement by US Journalist Mark Siegel and records of emails sent by Musharraf to former premier Benazir Bhutto.
