Islamabad: A Pakistani panel probing the US raid that killed Osama Bin Laden Wednesday interviewed high-ranking officials to know their opinion on the incident.

Aftab Sultan, director general of Intelligence Bureau, Ali Arshad Hakeem, chairman of National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) and Ahmer Bilal Sufi, advocate of Supreme Court, were interviewed.

President of the enquiry commission and former Supreme Court judge, Justice Javed Iqbal, chaired the Wednesday’s meeting, the official APP news agency reported.

The next meeting of the commission is on Oct 31.

Al Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden was killed May 2 in a US raid on his hideout in Abbottabad, about 60 km from Islamabad.

After the raid, the authorities seized the building and arrested his wives and daughters who were living with him. Earlier this month, they were allowed to leave the country. (IANS)
