ISLAMABAD: The military has reportedly formed an inquiry committee to investigate allegations of misuse of authority against former spymaster retired Lt Gen Faiz Hamid.

Media reports aired on Wednesday said the committee had been formed by the military as a gesture of self-accountability and will be headed by a serving major general.

They said the committee was formed in the light of directives of the Supreme Court and the Ministry of Defence.

The management of Top City, a private housing scheme, had levelled grave allegations against the former ISI chief, claiming that he had orchestrated a raid on the offices and residence of its owner, Moeez Khan.

In Nov last year, the Supreme Court had asked the owner of the housing society to approach the relevant quarters, including the defence ministry, for the redressal of his grievances against the former spymaster and his aides.

The newly constituted inquiry committee will prepare its report in the light of its findings and present it to the relevant authorities, reports said.
