On Feb 7, the investigation team had asked the court to issue warrants for the taking into custody of the former president as despite frequent attempts, the FIA had not been able to get in touch with Gen Musharraf for quizzical him about his alleged role in the conspiracy to kill the former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. According to the investigation report, the investigators have charged the former president of not providing appropriate security measures to Benazir Bhutto as was ensured for other former prime ministers Shaukat Aziz and Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, as he wanted to get rid of Ms Bhutto. The accused are likely to be summoned on the next date of hearing.
