ISLAMABAD: Former Military Intelligence (MI) chief Maj. Gen. Nadeem Ejaz who appeared before the fact finding commission Friday stated that he or MI has nothing to do with the hosing down of Benazir assassination site.
Meanwhile, according to former police chief Saud Aziz ordered washing of the murder scene after collecting all the evidence in view of, what he said, deteriorating law and order situation.
Sources told Geo News that the fact finding commission met here today under the chairmanship of Secretary Cabinet Division Abdul Rauf Chaudhry.
Appearing for the first time before the commission, Maj. Gen. Nadeem Ejaz gave answers to several questions to the satisfaction of the commission. The former MI chief travelled from Gujranwala to Islamabad where he was questioned for one hour, sources said.
He categorically stated that he, his department or any of his colleagues had no relation whatsoever with the hosing down of Ms Bhutto’s murder scene.
CCPO Saud Aziz, who appeared for second time before the commission, said in his written statement that he received no order from head of any other department to have the murder spot washed. “Had I received any such order I would have been bound to inform about it to the head of my department, IG Punjab, and sought instructions … but no such thing happened,” he continued.
Saud Aziz clearly said in his statement that it was his own decision to have the place washed off after retrieving the evidence, keeping in view the law and order situation at that time.
He also presented to the commission past record of the incidents of terrorism in the country in which crime scenes ware hosed down.
SP Khurram Shahzad and two administrative officers also appeared before the fact finding commission.
