A former official with Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence has warned against presence of US-backed rogue elements in the spy agency.
"Some rogue elements in the ISI are working against the interest of the country. They are being funded by a terror sponsor state, the US," Khalid Khawaja, who is also Chief Coordinator at the Defense of Human Rights, an NGO, in Islamabad, said in an interview with Press TV.
He added that there was a confusion over the country's powerful spy agency since nobody really knew who controlled the ISI.
"Anytime the Supreme Court called the Interior Ministry or the Defense Ministry, they could not get the ISI into the court," he said, adding the Americans do not want the court to reach the people who have been abducted by the ISI.
He made the statement in reference to Amnesty International which accused the US and Britain of helping Pakistani intelligence agency in the "enforced disappearances" of more than 560 people.
The group earlier called on Pakistani intelligence agencies to either free them or move them to official jails.
Khawaja also asserted that the Americans had planted the bomb in the Indian Embassy in Kabul to widen the rift between Indians and Pakistanis.
The debate comes after a New York Times report according to which the US State Department, based on intercepted communications between Pakistani intelligence officers and militants, concluded that Pakistani intelligence officers are actively undermining coalition efforts to combat militants in the region.
Analysts say the developments could be also a sign that the relationship between the CIA and the ISI may be deteriorating.
