03:53 PM | 26 May, 2018
LAHORE - The Spy Chronicles: RAW, ISI and the Illusion of Peace, a book co-authored by former spy chiefs' of ISI and RAW is making headlines. Manuscript of the book was leaked even before it was published, and it caught everyone's attention after GHQ summoned Muhammad Asad Durrani to give an explanation for the statements he made in the book.

One such confession was made by Amrit Singh Dulat, co-author, and former RAW spy. According to Dulat, Durrani put forward a suggestion on "How to choreograph surgical strikes."

The suggestion was made by Durrani in 2011, while both him and Dulat were drinking.

As per Dulat's account, "In Islamabad in 2011, when we got a bottle of Black Label (whiskey) from General Saheb’s car and had a drink in my room, he spoke to me about how it would be if we had an understanding. For instance, if Mumbai 8 happened again, there would be an understanding that India had to retaliate. And that it could be managed. That India could do what (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi did, a surgical strike."

The former RAW chief shared that he found it "interesting". In his words, "It was interesting. Here was a former ISI chief with a considerable reputation, suggesting how to choreograph surgical strikes. How can a person get more candid?"
