No separate probe into Benazir Bhutto`s murder: Pakistan
Islamabad: The Pakistani government said on Friday it was satisfied with the investigations into the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and rejected the need for a separate probe, a media report said.
"We will wait for the court decision and then evolve a future line of action," Dawn quoted Information Minister Pervez Rashid as saying.
Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in a suicide attack and firing in Rawalpindi on December 27, 2007, after she had addressed an election campaign rally.
Four investigations have already been carried out and the case is before a court, the report said.
"Since the matter is in court, we cannot initiate a separate investigation."
"Let us see what the court decides on the investigation reports already submitted to it," the minister added.
The first investigation was carried out by a joint investigation team, the second by Scotland Yard, the third by a UN commission in 2009 and the fourth by the Federal Investigation Agency, the report said.
Pakistan`s former military ruler General Pervez Musharraf, who is also facing trial in Bhutto`s murder case, had already been granted bail.
Some others accused of being involved in the assassination are in jail.
