DIG Mughal quits probe after Benazir accuses him of torturing ZardariNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:48 am ICT by admin
“The officer has asked to be sent on leave and a new officer will be appointed to head the investigation,” he added.
Mohtarem said that the Sindh Government had no doubt about DIG Mughal’s competency and professionalism, but that he had decided to withdraw to protect the investigation from accusations of bias.
The Sindh government later appointed DIG (Investigation) Saood Mirza to head the investigation team, the Dawn reported.
The Sindh Government also changed 45 personnel on Bhutto’s security team, Aaj News reported.
Police said investigators have held at least 15 people for questioning. Some of those held were injured in Thursday’s attack on Bhutto’s homecoming rally and were picked up from local hospitals. (ANI)
