Former ISI chief summoned by Pak Army for an ‘explanation’ over book co-authored with ex-RAW chief

The Pakistan Army has summoned the former ISI chief Lt General Assad Durrani for an explanation over the book ‘Spy Chronicles’ he has co authored with the former RAW Chief A S Dulat and journalist Aditya Sinha, said a report of the Express Tribune.

In a social media post on Saturday, the military’s media wing said Durrani has been summoned to the General Headquarters (GHQ) on May 28 to “explain his position on views attributed to him in the book ‘Spy Chronicles’.

The tweet by DG Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor further said that the attribution is being taken as a violation of the Military Code of Conduct which is applicable to all serving and retired military personnel.

Durrani made certain observations in the book, including a claim that then prime minister Yousaf Raza Gillani was fully onboard regarding the US Navy Seals operation against Osama Bin Ladin in Abbottabad and that a special deal was struck between the US and Pakistani governments in this regard.

He also went on to suggest that Pakistan mishandled the case of convicted Indian spy Kulbushan Jadhav, claiming he would eventually be handed over to India.

Military sources said GHQ has serious reservations over some of the comments in the book, terming them baseless and contrary to facts.
