UN yet to receive Pak request for probe into Bhutto assassinationApril 15th, 2008 - 7:28 pm ICT by admin
New York, Apr.15 (ANI): The United Nations is yet to receive a letter from Pakistan for conducting an international probe into the December 27, 2007 assassination of Benazir Bhutto.
A spokesperson of the UN when asked how Secretary-General plans to proceed now that Pakistan Parliament has decided to seek a UN inquiry, said, they are yet to receive any communication from Pakistan in this regard.
It may be recalled that President Pervez Musharraf was opposed to the UN inquiry.
The Musharraf regime had accused an al-Qaeda militant Baitullah Mehsud of killing Bhutto but several lawmakers said that he might not be the culprit and want an independent inquiry into the assassination.
Mehsud also has denied any hand in the killing. (ANI)
