ISLAMABAD: Former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Asad Durrani, in his reply to Supreme Court on Thursday in the Asghar Khan petition, admitted that Rs70 million had been distributed among politicians through officials of the Military Intelligence (MI).

Durrani said that he can also name the officers who acted as the couriers if the court asks him to.

In his statement, Durrani maintained that he distributed only Rs70 million out of the total Rs140 million and the remaining money was deposited in ISI’s special fund account. He added that he distributed the money on the orders of then army chief General Aslam Beg.

Air Marshal (retd) Asghar Khan, in his petition filed in 1996, had requested the court to look into allegations that the ISI had provided Rs140 million to create the Islamic Jamhoori Ittehad to harm Benazir Bhutto’s election campaign.

We should not talk against SC at this stage. Things are moving in their logical and normal pace. Mysteries are getting cleared. Why shout for decision ?

Wait for ultimate conclusion, and decision. It will be coming at its appropriate time. Have the judiciary, and more in yourself, and most of all in the changed circumstances. . .

Asghar Khan Case has made Pakistan a laughing stock. It is not only mockery of Pakistan but the people as well. Conspiracies are hatched against PPP since its inception. Younis Habbib very clearly mentioned that he was compelled to level fabricated cased against Asif Ali Zardari. What is the compensation for damage that PPP received from IJI. Nawaz Sharif today is trying to become the champion of democracy was the main culprit. Doesn’t he deserve a capital punishment? Earlier Saif ur Rehman confessed that Zardari was charged on graft cases leveled on the direction of Nawaz Sharif and now Younis Habib repeated the same story. What is the legal position of these cases against Asif Zardari? Would honorable CJP take any sue moto on this issue?
