Formal court of inquiry to probe into Gen Durrani’s book: ISPR
RAWALPINDI: The name of a former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief, retired Lt Gen Asad Durrani who recently co-authored a book with former Research & Analysis Wing (RAW) chief Amarjit Singh Dulat will be placed on the no-fly list, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) announced on Monday.
The statement followed Durrani’s summoning to General Headquarters (GHQ) on Monday to “explain his position on views attributed to him” in the book, titled The Spy Chronicles: RAW, ISI and the Illusion of Peace.
“The competent authority [has been] approached to place his [Durrani] name on the Exit Control List,” army spokesperson Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor announced on Monday via Twitter.
He added that “a formal Court of Inquiry headed by a serving Lt Gen has been ordered to probe the matter in detail”.
Earlier, expressing reservations about a book co-authored by the ISI ex-chief retired Lt Gen Asad Durrani and RAW’s ex-chief AJ Dulat, the military on Friday summoned the former to the General Headquarters (GHQ) to explain his position on the views attributed to him.
The book is mainly a series of discussions conducted between the two former adversaries on a range of topics, moderated by journalist Aditya Sinha. News Desk/INP/DNA
