Gunmen on a motorcycle on Friday shot dead a prosecutor investigating the 2007 assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, one of the most shocking events in the country’s turbulent history.

Police sources said Chaudhry Zulfikar was shot in his car after he left home and headed to a hearing in the case, a reminder of Pakistan’s instability just a week before general elections.

“He was killed by unknown gunmen. Twelve bullets were fired,” said a police source.

Zulfikar was also the prosecutor investigating the 2008 attacks on India’s commercial capital, Mumbai, in which 166 people were killed. India said militants based in┬áPakistan were behind the three-day rampage.
