Lahore, May 3 (ANI): The UN commission’s report on the assassination of Pakistan’s former premier Benazir Bhutto is still incomplete, according to Defence Minister Ahmed Mukhtar.

Talking to journalists in Gujrat, the Pakistani Defence Minister said the fact-finding commission constituted by Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani would finalise its report within eight days.

He said the commission’s report would bring some new facts to light and help arrest the real culprits, the Daily Times reports.

Meanwhile, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman termed the UN Commission’s report as ‘ambiguous’; because it has failed to provide answers to a number of questions.

“If the UN Commission’s report satisfies the government then it is the responsibility of the latter to uncover the assassins of Ms Benazir Bhutto,” Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman said.

He said Awami National Party (ANP) has got ‘registered Khyber Pukhtoonwkwa’ name from Punjab.

Regarding the 17th amendment, the JUI Chief said only a few clauses were changed on which “I put my signature with reservations”.

“JUI wants provincial autonomy under the 18th amendment of the Constitution, renaming of the province is someone else’s agenda,” he maintained. (ANI)
