Lahore, April 5(ANI): The Lahore High Court has granted Pakistan’s Law Ministry access to the record of the case against former Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.

Last Friday, President Asif Ali Zardari had signed the reference seeking to reopen the case of former Prime Minister and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) founder Bhutto, who was hanged on April 4, 1979, in Rawalpindi.

An application was submitted to the LHC registrar, stating that the presidential reference had been filed in the Supreme Court to revisit the decision in the case.

The government needs to inspect the record so that it could assist the apex court, the Dawn quoted the application, as saying.

The registrar sought the approval from the LHC Chief Justice in this regard, and then allowed the Law Ministry to have a look at the case record.

Advocate Arif Chaudhry, consultant to the Law Minister, will inspect the record on Tuesday. (ANI)
