Asghar alleged in the FIR that Mr Haqqani was a "mentor of the Memogate scandal" and had issued visas to "CIA and Indian agents" while serving as Pakistani ambassador to the US.

He served as ambassador from 2008 to 2011 in US and was removed for his alleged role in what is known as the Memogate controversy.



Mr Haqqani was criticised by the Pakistani parliament for his column in The Washington Post in which he had written that he had helped US forces in eliminating al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden when the government and the Inter-Services Intelligence had been kept in the dark about the secret operation.


It was about a memo sent to former Admiral Mike Mullen apparently seeking help of the Obama administration to avert a military takeover in the wake of raid at the hideout of Bin Laden in May 2011.
