Islamabad: A Pakistani anti-terrorism court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing of the 2007 Benazir Bhutto assassination case without any proceedings till June 11 after investigators sought more time to submit the final challan or chargesheet.

Special Prosecutor Chaudhry Azhar of the Federal Investigation Agency informed Judge Chaudhry Habib-ur-Rehman that the agency had not yet completed its probe and more time is needed to finalise the challan.

The FIA has submitted four interim chargesheets in the anti-terrorism court over the assassination of former premier Bhutto, who was killed by a suicide attacker shortly after addressing an election rally in Rawalpindi in December 2007.

This was the second hearing of the high profile case after the assassination of chief prosecutor Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali, who was killed by suspected militants in Islamabad on May 3.
