Who Killed Shahnawaz?

My letter in the NewsPost today:

Monday, March 15, 2010
This is in response to Shakir Lakhani’s letter “Who killed Shahnawaz?” (March 10). Shahnawaz Bhutto’s death was attributed to an overdose of drug by the Pakistani media which was under Zia’s control at the time. The former federal minister and one of the founding members of the PPP, Malik Mukhtar Ahmed Awan, stated last year that he had told Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto that her brother was poisoned by Brig Imtiaz. PPP veteran Naseerullah Babar also believes that Zia was involved in the death of Shahnawaz.

As Shahnawaz died under mysterious circumstances, and his wife was also a suspect in the case, there are many conspiracy theories. But there is no definite answer to the question of the cause of his death.
