Lahore, Aug.31 (ANI): Former Pakistan Intelligence Bureau (IB) Director General Brigadier (retired) Imtiaz Ahmed has alleged that former Punjab Governor Ghulam Mustafa Khar had hatched a conspiracy to kill several key Pakistan Army officials, and claimed that the plot was backed by the then Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
In an interview with a private television channel, Brigadier Ahmed said that Khar had chalked out a plan to kill several important commanders of the Pakistan Army in a bomb blast.e said the plan, according to which the Indian intelligence agency RAW would provide arms to Pakistan, was also approved by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
"An Indian official, Joshi, had arranged Khar's meeting with Gandhi and finalized the plans," Brigadier Ahmed said.

He said some elements had hatched conspiracies to diminish his popularity and acceptance with the Armed Forces.
"I had visited to India to visit the graves of saints, not hatch a conspiracy," The Daily Times quoted Khar, as saying. (ANI)
