The inquiry commission on the Abbottabad operation conducted detailed interviews on Monday of Khyber-Pakthunkhwa Coordinator for the National Programme on Family Planning and Primary Health Care Dr Ihsanullah Turabi, the Comprehensive Security Services (Pvt) Ltd Rawalpindi Incharge Bashir Chohan and Maj (retd) Aamir Aziz of Bilal Colony Abbottabad.
The meeting was held at the cabinet division under the chairmanship of Javed Iqbal, former senior judge of the Supreme Court and the president of the commission. Lt Gen (retd) Nadeem Ahmed, member of the commission, also attended the meeting.
Earlier, sources said the commission was ‘likely’ to complete the probe by the end of January.
However, it has also been reported that compilation of the report is ‘complicated’ and may take longer than expected.
The commission has so far questioned over 100 witnesses, including military and security officials, former foreign secretaries and ministers, police and intelligence officials, former ambassador Husain Haqqani, Bin Laden’s family, neighbours, and media personnel in Islamabad and from Abbottabad.
