ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected a plea for a fresh first information report in the Benazir Bhutto murder case against former president Pervez Musharraf, ex-minister Babar Awan, Deputy Prime Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi and Interior Minister Rehman Malik.A five-judge SC bench under Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jilani heard the petition filed by Chaudhry Aslam, former chief protocol officer of Benazir Bhutto, saying the previous FIR in this case did not mention the names of ‘real culprits’.Deputy Attorney General Shafi Muhammad Chandio told the bench that the applicant had no locus standi in this matter since he (Chaudhry) had no blood relation with Benazir Bhutto and the petitioner approached the court 19 months after her assassination. The deputy attorney general said that her heirs and the Pakistan People’s Party were uninterested in the registration of a fresh FIR.Chandio said the applicant could record his statement in the trail court as the matter was sub judice in an anti-terrorism court. The court asked the applicant as to why he remained silent for 19 months but he failed to satisfy the bench.On June 23, 2011, the Lahore High Court Rawalpindi Bench dismissed Chaudhry’s plea for placing Babar Awan and Rehman Malik on the Exit Control List (ECL). One of the judges had written an additional note that Chaudhry was neither an aggrieved party, nor an heir of Benazir Bhutto, thus he had no right to seek registration of FIR in the murder case of Benazir Bhutto.In his plea before the Supreme Court, Chaudhry said the June 23 decision was ‘unlawful, perverse, without jurisdiction and based on the fanciful application of the mind’. He claimed the LHC had failed to give due consideration to the $60 million United Nations report. Objecting the status of the petitioner, the court observed that such petition could only be filed by the deceased’s heirs thus Chaudhry withdrew his petition and the case was disposed of.
