Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa endorsed punishment to two senior retired Army officers and one civil officer “on the charges of espionage/ leakage of sensitive information to foreign agencies prejudice to the national security“, a statement by the Inter-Services Public Relations said on Thursday.
“Reports started circulating in the media that two senior army officers were under arrest. Yes they are. There are two officers who are under military custody on the charges of espionage,” the ISPR director general confirms in the video.
“The army chief has ordered a field general court martial which is under process.”
Maj. Gen Ghafoor said that both were separate cases and not linked to one another in any way “and there is no network as such”.
