Benazir case: Scotland Yard alleges non-coperation

January 19, 2008 14:20 IST

The Scotland Yard team probing former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto's [Images] assassination has lodged a written complaint with President Pervez Musharraf [Images], alleging non-cooperation by local investigating agencies.

In a letter dated January 10, the world's premier investigating agency requested the president to direct local administration to provide it information about the evidence collected from the crime scene soon after the incident, The News reported, quoting reliable sources.

"The Scotland Yard has not yet been able to collect any worthwhile evidence due to lack of cooperation by the Pakistani investigating and intelligence agencies," the letter said.

It is alleged that the Punjab police team, led by Additional Inspector General of Police, CID, Abdul Majid was not extending ''required cooperation''.

The Scotland Yard team arrived on January 4 on the request of the Pakistan government to assist in the probe of Benazir Bhutto's assassination in December 27.

Sources claimed that taking note of the complaint, the President has asked the agencies concerned to provide necessary information to the foreign investigators.
