Rawalpindi, May 28 (TNS): In a major development, the Pakistan Army on Monday ordered an inquiry into the revelations made by former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lieutenant General (retd) Asad Durrani in controversial book co-written by his Indian counterpart.

Durrani co-authored The Spy Chronicles: RAW, ISI and the Illusion of Peace with Amarjit Singh Dulat and Aditya Sinha.

“A ‘competent authority’ has been approached to add his name on the Exit Control List (ECL)”, the military’s media wing said.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), a formal court of inquiry headed by a serving Lt Gen has been ordered to probe the matter in detail.

“Competent authority approached to place his name on ECL,” reads the statement.

Former spy master Lt Gen (retd) Durrani was summoned by the army in connection with a ‘controversial’ book he co-authored with an erstwhile Research & Intelligence Wing (RAW) top boss and Indian journalist.
