PPP leaders are also paying rich tribute to Shaheed Benazir Bhutto on her 15th death anniversary, as they honor the former prime minister’s legacy and the leadership role she played.

The assassination of two-time former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto took place in Rawalpindi on 27 December 2007. Shots were fired at her after a political rally at Liaqat National Bagh, and a suicide bomb was detonated immediately following the shooting.

An anti-terrorism court had exonerated five men accused of involvement in the attack. The men were accused of being members of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). The court had also convicted and sentenced two senior police officers for willful negligence and tampering with evidence during the investigation into the murder. Pervez Musharraf, who had denied any involvement in the murder, was declared a fugitive by the same court for failing to appear during hearings.
