Pakistan’s army summons former spy chief over book

May 26, 2018

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan’s army has summoned a former spy chief over a book he co-authored with his former Indian counterpart.

The newly released book, entitled “Spy Chronicles,” suggests Pakistan cooperated with the U.S. in the 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden. The book is co-written by Asad Durrani, the former chief of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence; AS Daulat, the former head of India’s Research and Analysis Wing; and the Indian journalist Aditya Sinha. Durrani had retired years before the bin Laden raid.

Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor, a military spokesman, tweeted late Friday that Durrani had been summoned to appear at army headquarters on Monday over violations of military rules on attribution, without providing further details.
