Lt General (r) Shahid Aziz, who served as director-general of military operations (DGMO), was killed in Afghanistan recently.

The Pakistan Today quoted unnamed relatives as saying the ex-general had been killed in the neighbouring country. However, the exact location and date were not given.

But Shahid Aziz’s son denied the report that his father had been killed. Aziz reportedly worked in Afghanistan as penance for what he had done in support of US troops.

Former military ruler Pervez Musharraf said Aziz, sporting a beard, had gone to Syria, and was killed there.

On completing 37 years of service, Aziz retired from the Pakistan Army in 2005. He had also served as Lahore corps commander.
