London: A London-based news agency has claimed that a Pakistan Army official, Brigadier Ali Khan, who will face a court-martial for his ties with a banned extremist group, was brainwashing his counterparts for mutiny.
The Pakistan Army decided to court-martial Khan for his alleged links with the Hizb-ut-Tahrir, The News reports.
The summary of formal charges against Khan has been finalised and his court martial is expected to begin soon, Geo News quoted sources, as saying.
Khan, who was serving as Director for Rules and Regulations at the Army`s headquarters in Rawalpindi, was arrested in 2011, triggering concerns about the presence of sympathisers for extremist groups in the Pakistani military.
The Pakistan Army had earlier confirmed that it was interrogating four military officials in connection with Khan’s arrest.
