The Sindh High Court approved the petition in which Zardari sought private security guards and bullet-proof car with tinted glasses for security purposes, a newspaper reported. The petition was filed by Zardari's attorney Abu Bakar Zardari a few days back.

According to Zardari, his wife and former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was killed and he feared that he too would suffer the same fate.

According to the attorney, the petition also sought weapons' licenses and permission to hire personal guards for the security of Zardari, his son and two daughters. "It is the typical mindset that assassinated Benazir Bhutto... and those elements still pose threats to the life of Zardari and his family," the newspaper quoted attorney Zardari as saying.
