RAWALPINDI – The verdict for the murder case of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto is expected to be announced on Thursday, Geo News reported on Tuesday.

Suspects Hussain Gul and Rafaqat’s legal counsel Jawad Khalid told an anti-terrorism court that the statements received from his clients hold Pervez Musharraf among others responsible for the crime.

He also claimed that there is no solid proof against his clients. There is a conflict between investigating officers’ statements and the weapons recovered from the scene of the crime.

“This raises suspicion,” he remarked, adding that the court should show mercy towards the innocent.

“The real culprits are not being punished for the crime,” added the legal counsel.

FIA prosecutor Khawaja Asif accepted that there is no record of the suspects in the DNA report.
