Kargil conflict: 500 Pakistani soldiers were killed, PML-N demands inquiry

Kargil conflict

"f there is no accountability, another general like Musharraf could do the same thing in future," he said.

A PML-N government headed by party chief Nawaz Sharif was in power at the time when Pakistani soldiers captured strategic heights along the LoC in early 1999.

The troops were forced to withdraw following counter-attacks by Indian forces backed by artillery and airpower.

Following the Pakistan Army's debacle in Kargil, relations between Sharif and Musharraf deteriorated and the PML-N government was removed in a bloodless coup.

Though Aziz has said he had come across information that suggested Sharif was not kept totally in the dark about the Kargil operation, Khan contended that he had a 'lot of proof' about what the generals had told Sharif in 1999.

Khan said he would also raise his demand for an inquiry in the National Assembly.
