Islamabad , Aug 2 (ANI): Amid accusations that ISI was hand-in-glove with tribal militants along Pak-Afghan border and was behind the July 7 suicide bombing on Indian embassy in Kabul , a former chief of the Pakistan intelligence agency has said that it was the most disciplined intelligence organisation in the world.

The ISI was not involved in any policy against the state, said Hamid Gul and added that the recent accusations against the agency were all propaganda against it.

The responsibility of internal political intelligence was assigned to the ISI during Zulfikar Bhuttos regime, and was part of the agencys Charter, the Daily Times quoted him as saying.

He further said that Pakistani intelligence was helping US agencies and as a result more than 750 militants had been arrested and several others killed.

The US , he said, was expecting the same role from ISI that it played during the Afghan-Russia war but the Afghan are against the US now. (ANI)
