Islamabad, Apr 26(ANI): Pakistan politicians have urged the government to start an investigation against former Military Intelligence Director General, Major General Nadeem Ejaz, who has been accused of a number of crimes including kidnapping of several political activists in Balochistan and Punjab.
According to reports, Ejaz once kidnapped the security guards of Chaudhry Shujaat Hussaina and also picked up the brother of a sitting MPA of the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) for settling his personal scores with the then-Punjab Chief Minister.
Background interactions with leaders of these political parties revealed that Ejaz had become a monster in the last days of the General Pervez Musharraf regime.
It is also believed that even after the retirement of Musharraf as Army chief, Ejaz was directly reporting to him bypassing new Army chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, The News reports.
A recently published UN Commission report on the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto claimed that after the assassination the crime scene was hosed down on the orders of Ejaz.
Though the government has constituted a three-member committee to pinpoint the responsibility for hosing down the crime scene, political circles in Islamabad are of the view that Ejaz's role was not limited to hosing down the crime scene.
The politicians also claim that he should be investigated thoroughly because he was directly or indirectly related to many other important events like the assassination of Akbar Bugti in August 2006 and massacre in Karachi on May 12, 2007. (ANI)
