Washington, Mar 9 (ANI): Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has termed Interior Minister Rehman Malik's claim of having asked the former of providing security to the slain PPP leader Benazir Bhutto, as one more of the "apple and banana" moments specific to Malik.
He said that as the then president, he did not possess small details, but if he had ordered that she should not be provided security she was entitled to, then he can be held responsible.
The jialas had taken over the security, he said, adding that Khalid Shahanshah was doing strange things while standing next to Benazir.
Shahanshah was later murdered in Karachi, and this, Musharraf pointed out, must be investigated, the Express Tribune reports.
Musharraf said that he had called Benazir after receiving an intelligence report from a foreign agency, that "BB if you do not trust our agencies, this a foreign report. There are suicide bombers around."
On the suspected US vision for a partnership between Musharraf and Benazir, the former President declined any formal mediation, but the Americans made it evident that they liked Musharraf to continue as president and Benazir as prime minister in the future. (ANI)
