Islamabad: Pakistan has sent a second letter to Interpol asking it to arrest former President Pervez Musharraf, who had been declared a fugitive by an anti-terrorism court for failing to cooperate with investigators probing the 2007 assassination of Benazir Bhutto.
The Federal Investigation Agency, which is probing the assassination, attached arrest warrants for Musharraf and some pieces of evidence to the letter, which was sent to Interpol on Thursday.
The Interpol office in France had earlier returned a similar request by the FIA as no evidence against Musharraf had been provided.
The evidence sent with the letter on Thursady includes a statement by US Journalist Mark Siegel and records of emails sent by Musharraf to former premier Bhutto, media reported.
FIA Special Prosecutor Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali confirmed that the letter had been despatched.
Earlier, the British government had denied Pakistan’s request to repatriate Musharraf. British authorities said they were unable to act on the request as there was no extradition treaty between the two countries.
Musharraf, who has been living in self-exile in London and Dubai since early 2009, was declared a "proclaimed offender" or fugitive after investigators accused him of failing to provide adequate security to Bhutto.
Musharraf has also been accused of failing to cooperate with investigators.
The FIA told the anti-terrorism court conducting the trial of five men accused of involvement in Bhutto's killing that Musharraf was guilty of not providing adequate security to the former prime minister despite threats to her life.
