Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani has ordered investigation into a video footage which was posted on the internet showing execution of civilians by personnel dressed in Pakistan Army uniforms.
Investigation team will be lead by a two star general to establish the true identity of uniformed personnel and the veracity of the video footage. COAS has said that ’It is not expected of a professional army to engage in excesses against the people whom it is trying to guard against the scourge of terrorism. He has also said that in past militants posed themselves as soldiers to commit the acts of terrorism in the country.
SITE Intelligence Group has reported these videos actually appeared on an extremist site about two weeks ago. Two video clips which were posted over the internet had shown no time stamp and Pakistan army’s investigation team will try to identify the people in the video as well as try to determine whether those shown in uniform were actually soldiers. In the past militants have dressed up as Pakistan Army soldiers to attack Pakistan army’s head quarters.
