Pak rejects `baseless` report on US immunity to fmr ISI chiefs
Islamabad: Pakistan on Friday dismissed as "totally baseless" a report that the US had granted immunity to two former ISI chiefs in a lawsuit over the Mumbai attacks as part of a deal involving CIA contractor Raymond Davis, who had killed two Pakistanis last year.
Responding to a media report that portrayed the determination made by the US Department of State on immunity for the former ISI chiefs as part of some "deal", Foreign Office spokesman Moazzam "rejected such insinuations as totally baseless and incorrect".
The News daily had today claimed in a report that the US and Pakistan had hammered out a deal for the release of Davis, who was arrested after he killed two Pakistani men in Lahore, that involved giving immunity to former ISI chiefs Nadeem Taj and Shuja Pasha in a lawsuit in the US.
The lawsuit was filed by relatives of two Jewish victims of the 2008 Mumbai attacks, which were carried out by terrorists of the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba.
A US court has issued summons to the two former ISI chiefs and other Pakistani officials in connection with the lawsuit.
