RAWALPINDI (Dunya News) - The Pakistan army has decided to initiate an inquiry against former spymaster retired Lt Gen Faiz Hameed. 

It is learnt that the inquiry will be headed by a major general. 

It shows that the Pakistan army has started the inquiry by adhering to the practice of self-accountability.

The inquiry will be conducted on the complaints filed by a private housing society. 

Faizabad Commission Report 

Earlier, the inquiry commission probing the November 2017 Faizabad sit-in absolved former director general of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), retired Lt Gen Faiz Hameed, of the charges. 

The three-member commission, set up on the order of the Supreme Court, issued its 149-page report.

According to sources, the commission cited various loopholes in the handling of the issue and drafted recommendations after evaluating the circumstances related to the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan's sit-in at Faizabad.

The report highlighted the role of the Islamabad Police, the Ministry of Interior, the Punjab government, the ISI and the IB, and contained details of matters related to former law minister Zahid Hamid.

The report stated that Faiz Hameed as Maj Gen DG (C) ISI was authorised by the then army chief and the ISI director general to sign the agreement with protesters. Moreover, then prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and then interior minister Ahsan Iqbal also agreed on retired Gen Faiz Hameed's role as a mediator.
