RAWALPINDI: In one of rarest incident in the history of Pakistan, Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif has terminated the service of 11 high ranking officers over corruption charges.
The most prominent among the terminated officers is former Inspector General Frontier Constabulary Lt Gen Ubaidaullah Khattak.
Others include Major General Ijaz Shahid, five brigadiers, three colonels and one major.
The sacked officers are asked to deposit the embezzled money. All perks and privileges are withdrawn.
The development comes a day after the army chief said “across the board accountability is necessary for the solidarity, integrity and prosperity of Pakistan”.
On Tuesday, the army chief had said that the war against terror cannot be won unless “the menace of corruption is uprooted.”
