Reports of ex-Pakistani general Shahid Aziz death in Afghanistan 'fake', says son
Reports in local media speculated about the possible death of the retired general in Afghanistan while being on "jihad" fighting against US troops, whom he helped once in Musharaf era, citing Aziz's relatives.
However, Aziz’s son denied the reports that his father had been killed in the neighbouring country.
He's very much alive, the ex-officer's son confirmed to the media, adding that his father has been spending some time on tabligh (preaching) - definitely not in Afghanistan.

Earlier, former army chief General (r) Pervez Musharraf expressed that Shahid Aziz had grown a beard and gone to Syria, and according to some people, he (Shahid) had been killed there.
After his retirement from the army, Aziz was appointed as the NAB chairman in November 2005 by the then president Pervez Musharraf.
However, he resigned after two years on moral principles when he was asked to close all cases of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and her husband Asif Ali Zardari amid back-channel negotiations between Pervez Musharraf and Benazir Bhutto prior to the passing of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).
Lt General (r) Shahid Aziz also wrote a book titled “Yeh Khamoshi Kahan Tak” in which he made Shocking revelations about certain issues including the Kargil War.
