The Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for the assassination of the country’s former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.
The banned terror group in an Urdu-language book titled “Inqilab Mehsood South Waziristan” said it killed Benazir in 2007, reports the Hindu.
According to the report, they killed the Pakistani former prime minister as she allegedly planned to collaborate with the US against the “mujahideen” if she returned to power.
The book said the return of Benazir was planned at the behest of the Americans as they had given her a plan against the “Mujahideed-e-Islam.”
The book claimed that slain Pakistani Taliban founder Baitullah Mehsud had received information of the plan.
According to The Daily Times, no group had claimed responsibility for Benazir’s murder until the claim in the Taliban’s book.
The book claims suicide bombers Bilal, also known as Saeed, and Ikramullah carried out the attack in Pakistan’s Rawalpindi that killed Benazir on December 27, 2007.
Tehreek- e-Taliban Pakistan leader Abu Mansoor Asim Mufti Noor Wali wrote the book and published it on November 30, 2017.
