Former interior secretary Roedad Khan has revealed that the death of Zia-ul-Haq was conspired by Gen (retd) Aslam Baig and the US.
He said Mrs Robin Rafeel confirmed this and refused to meet General Aslam Baig during his visit to the US.
“The US became angry with Zia when he continued pursuing the nuclear bomb programme,” he told Pakistan’s local channel Dunya News.
“The US was also apprehensive that Zia would not allow it to play a role in Afghanistan.”
Meanwhile he said, judiciary was very powerful in Pakistan but accountability of ex-army men was still a far cry.
He predicted that caretaker government would be established but it would extend its tenure and there would be no accountability.
