Pakistan's Law Minister Rana Sanaullah has said that the 'forces', which had stopped Benazir Bhutto's post mortem were responsible for the lack of progress in the investigation into her assassination.

Sanaullah's remarks came on Friday as he criticised the Pakistan Peoples Party for not taking Bhutto's murderers to task.

According to the Express Tribune, he vowed that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz would steer the investigation in the "right direction" if it came into power.

The PPP wanted to play with people's emotions by using the name of Zulfikar and Benazir Bhutto in order to distract attention from its five years of corruption and bad governance, the minister added.

Now, he said, it had brought forward Bilawal Bhutto Zardari for this purpose. (ANI)
