ISLAMABAD, Feb. 11 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan's former President Pervez Musharraf may get into hot waters if he is prosecuted for the murder of slain leader Benazir Bhutto as the country's top investigation agency accused him in her murder charge, jurists told Xinhua on Thursday.
According to them, the country's biggest probe authority, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), though presented only interim charge sheet of the case before the anti-terrorism court but believed Musharraf was involved in assassination.
Pakistan's two-time Prime Minister Bhutto was killed by a suicide bomb attack followed by gunshots in Pakistan's garrison city Rawalpindi on Dec. 27, 2007 when she was leaving after addressing a public gathering for then upcoming elections.
Currently, the anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi is conducting the trial of five suspects who have been charged with planning and facilitating the assassination.
Musharraf, who ruled Pakistan from 1999 to 2008, was nominated accused in the First Information Report (FIR) but he did not agree to reply to the questioner of the joint investigation team.
Musharraf, living in Britain on self exile since April 2009, had formed his political party and announced occasionally that he intended to return to Pakistan before the next general election in 2013.
