Islamabad, Dec 29 (ANI): Pakistan Peoples Party spokesperson Sherry Rehman today claimed that she saw a bullet injury in former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhuttos head.

Rehman said that she saw the injury while Benazirs body was being washed before the burial in Larkana on Friday.

I was actually part of the party which bathed her body before the funeral, a foreign news agency quoted Rehman, as saying.

There was a bullet wound I saw that went in from the back of her head and came out the other side, said Rehman, adding, We could not even wash her properly because the wound was still seeping. She lost a huge amount of blood.

She also rubbished the Pakistan Governments claim that Benazir died after her head hit the sunroof of car.

Rehman, who was in Benazirs motorcade at the time of the gun and suicide attack, said that her car was used to transport Benazir to hospital.

The hospital was made to change its statement. They never gave a proper report, the Dawn quoted her, as saying.

I believe the interior ministry is saying that she died from some concussion that may have taken place against the sunroof. This is ridiculous, dangerous nonsense because it is a cover-up of what actually happened, Rehman said.

Benazir was assassinated on Thursday after she addressed a public meeting in Rawalpindi. (ANI)
