Karachi, June 2 (ANI): A former official of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) who is a key witness in Benazir Bhutto murder case, has refused to testify against Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) suspects who are being tried in the case.

A former official of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) who is a key witness in Benazir Bhutto murder case, has refused to testify against Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) suspects who are being tried in the case.

The Dawn quoted the former telephone operator of the ISI, as saying that his life is in danger as he lives in Karak District, which is close to the tribal areas.

As a result, the anti-terrorism court (ATC) discarded his earlier statement which he recorded before the team investigating the Benazir murder case.

The former official had confirmed to the investigating team that he intercepted the communication between the suspects and TTP terrorists.

Five suspects Aitzaz Shah, Husnain Gul, Sher Zaman, Rafaqat Hussain, and Abdul Rashid are facing trial in the case.
