Washington, Sep 15: After Musharraf made statements that US funds were used to strengthen defence against India, US said it is taking very seriously on allegations.

A State Department official said the 'allegations were not specific' and as of now the US was not aware of any such violations.

State Department spokesman Ian Kelly said, "This is former President who has made these allegations. We take seriously any allegations like this. But simply we don't have the details to be able to respond to the allegations."

When asked whether any investigation have launched in this regard, Kelly said, "First of all, Musharraf is a private citizen. He provided very few details, so we would refer you to him to get these kinds of details."

"I would just say, as a general principle, we take very seriously any allegation of using US-originating military assistance for purposes other than we had already agreed to and that we had intended them for," Kelly said.
