RAWALPINDI: Director General Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor Friday said former ISI chief Lt Gen (R) Asad Durrani was found guilty of violating the military code of conduct by co-authoring a book with a former chief of the Indian intelligence agency RAW.

He was addressing a press conference here in the wake of situation arising from the Pulwama suicide bombing.

Gen (R) Durrani had co-authored ‘The Spy Chronicles’ with ex-RAW chief AS Dulat.

“He has been found guilty of violating the military code of conduct. His pension and other benefits have been stopped,” he said.

"Two senior military officials are under arrest for espionage. The army chief has ordered their court martial," he said, adding that the two officials in question “are not part of a network.”

An inquiry was launched against Lt Gen (R) Asad Durrani last year for publishing ‘The Spy Chronicles’.

He had also been summoned by the General Headquarters (GHQ) in May, where he was asked to explain his position on views attributed to him in the book.
