Islamabad: Terming the case of former Pakistan Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto as a `judicial murder`, former Supreme Court Bar Association president Aitzaz Ahsan has said the apex court could reopen the case.
In an interview to a private television channel, Ahsan said `exemplary punishment` should be given to those responsible for Bhutto` execution.

He claimed that former Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz had prepared the reference against Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry in collaboration with a joint secretary, and that it was approved by the signatories in a huff, The Daily Times reports.

Ahsan said the Supreme Court could also take sou motu notice on Benazir`s assassination, as the UN Commission probing the case does not have a mandate to hold a criminal probe.
