Former Pakistan president and Army chief General Pervez Musharraf has demanded action against General (retired) Shahid Aziz under the Official Secrets Act.

Musharraf accused Aziz of defaming the army through his book in which he has strongly criticised the former for not taking other relevant military leaders into confidence while launching the Kargil conflict, reports The Nation.

Confidentiality and secrecy, he said, should be maintained at all costs, implying that Shahid had failed to do so. He added that Shahid had become very unpopular after writing the book. (ANI)
