Nine years after the failure of the Indo-Pak Agra Summit, the then President Pervez Musharraf has blamed one Indian official for it.

Musharraf said that things were progressing fine during the summit meeting with then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee till Vivek Katju, the then joint secretary in charge of Pakistan division in External Affairs Ministry, intervened. Katju is currently Secretary (West) in the ministry.

"There was someone from the Foreign Ministry sitting there named Katju. He may still be there, he created a lot of hurdles," the former Pakistani Army Chief, who is living in exile in Britain and is currently in Dubai, told TV channel News 24.
