HRCP Chairperson Asma Jahangir said in a statement that circumstantial evidence implied that the government was guilty of foulplay.

"The United Nations should hold an independent inquiry to investigate the killing of Benazir as it had done following the killing of Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri," she said.

Asma said it was the basic rule of investigation that police always sealed the crime scene and forensic experts collected evidences. "When you are not guilty of committing something so heinous, you immediately protect the crime scene and say look we have not done anything. Everything is there and anyone can investigate it," she said.
