Aziz was the chief of police in Rawalpindi, where Benazir was assassinated, while Shahzad was the superintendent of police of Rawal Town.
Bhutto was killed along with 21 people in a gun-and-bomb attack outside Rawalpindi's Liaquat Bagh during an election rally on December 27, 2007.
Ikramullah, one of Pakistan's most-wanted terrorists, was named as the second suicide bomber in Benazir Bhutto's assassination in 2007.

It's a tragedy for a country on a road to more disasters. Torrents and foaming cataracts lie ahead. And it is a personal tragedy. The house of Bhutto has lost another member. Father, two sons and now a daughter have all died unnatural deaths.
Not Nawaz but Musharraf gains from the removal of Benazir from the scene. The US realises the folly of uncritical dependence on Musharraf but has no option at present.
It is high time Musharraf and the US realise that Al Qaeda is not just in the tribal belt. It is right there in GHQ, Rawalpindi.
