Seminary students role in Benazir’s killing: court
Students of a prominent seminary run by a cleric known as the “father of the Taliban” were involved in the 2007 assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, officials have told a court.

The hearing of the case in Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC), Rawalpindi, by Justice Pervez Ismail was held yesterday inside Adiala Jail of the city due to security reasons.

Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Peshawar Inspector Naseer Ahmed and Sub-Inspector Adnan told the court about the involvement of Darul Uloom Haqqania’s students in the killing of Benazir, Dawn News reported.

Both the state witnesses also presented related evidence to support their statements.

Darul Uloom Haqqania’s director education Wisal Ahmed, in his statement, admitted that the suspected suicide bomber Abdullah alias Saddam Nadir alias Qari Ismail and arrested suspects Rasheed alias Turabi and Faiz Muhammad had received education from the seminary but rejected the claim that the seminary was linked to them.
