Benazir was killed not by Taliban, but by 'people who were threatened by her': Imran

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has said former premier Benazir Bhutto was not assassinated by the Taliban, but by the people who were worried that she was going to come into power.

On Tuesday, an anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi put former military chief and president Pervez Musharraf on a 14-day judicial remand for charges of failing to provide adequate security for Bhutto before her assassination in 2007, reports The Express Tribune.

Musharraf returned to Pakistan in March after nearly four years of self-imposed exile to contest the May 11 general election, but election officers disqualified him because of court cases pending against him.

He has been embroiled in legal issues since his return, including treason charges for imposing emergency rule, the assassination Bhutto and the killing of Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Bugti in 2006. (ANI)
