In the following three videos, Najam Sethi, Editor Friday Times, Pakistan, makes candid revelations on how the Pakistan Army plotted to occupy the Kargil Heights clandestinely. The plan by Pakistan to offset the loss of Siachen appears to be the underpinning motive. While Gen Zia-ul-Haq had refused the Pak Army’s plan during his tenure, Gen Musharraf revived and dusted the old army plan to occupy Kargil Heights.
This was one of the biggest intelligence failure by R&AW, IB, Military Intelligence and the Indian Army. The very fact that the Pakistani troops were inside Indian Territory in Kargil from January 1999 onwards and we only came to know about in May 1999, speaks volumes on lackluster performance of the intelligence agencies.
