RAWALPINDI: The Anti-Terrorism Court-I (ATC-I) will begin the retrial of Benazir Bhutto murder case by recording statements of four doctors today (Tuesday).
The doctors, working at the Holy Family Hospital (HFH) and District Headquarters (DHQ) Hospital, had treated the injured and conducted the post-mortem of the deceased persons brought to the hospitals on December 27, 2007 following the attack on slain Pakistan People's Party (PPP) chairperson Benazir Bhutto at Liaquat Bagh.
On October 1, ATC judge Justice Chaudhry Habibur Rehman had ordered to start the retrial of the case after the indictment of Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf, besides summoning four prosecution witnesses – Dr Hina Bukhari and Dr Rida Khan of the HFH and Dr Qasim and Dr Ashraf of the DHQ Hospital – for recording their statements.
