US denies role in General Zia’s plane crash
Islamabad: The US has rejected allegations that it was in any way involved in the plane crash that killed former president Zia-ul-Haq and several top Pakistani officials.
US embassy spokesman Richard Snelsire denied former Intelligence Bureau chief Brigadier (retired) Imtiaz Ahmed’s claims that the US was behind the crash, adding that, “[other] allegations that the US tried to influence or stall the investigations are baseless and untrue. We reject all such allegations.”
The then US Ambassador in Pakistan was killed in the 1988 incident therefore, the US will always favour getting to the actual facts, sources said.
Zia-ul-Haq’s elder son Ejaz-ul-Haq had alleged that the US forcefully stopped the probe into the incident of plane crash.
Ahmed said the US and internal powers were behind the 1988 plane crash that killed General Zia-ul-Haq, who ruled Pakistan from 1978 till his death.
