'Musharraf moved N-missiles during Kargil war'

india Updated: Jul 06, 2006 00:25 IST

Pakistani army led by General Pervez Musharraf had moved nuclear warheads during the Kargil war so that they could be used against India, exiled former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has claimed in his official biography.

"During my post-Kargil misadventure meeting with American President (Bill) Clinton, I was told by the American leader that the nuclear warheads had been shifted from one station to the other during the Kargil War.

"I was taken aback by this revelation because I knew nothing about it.

"The American President further told me during the meeting that the nuclear warheads have been moved so that these could be used against India.

"I was asked by Clinton as to why I was unaware of these developments despite being the elected chief executive and the Prime Minister of the country. It was a very irresponsible thing to do on General Musharraf's part," Sharif was quoted as saying in the biography titled Ghadaar Kaun? Nawaz Sharif Ki Kahani, Unki Zubani (Who is the traitor? Nawaz Sharif's Story in His Own Words.)

The 500-page book, which is based on the personal and political life of Sharif, who is in London, has been written by senior Pakistani journalist Suhail Warraich and was released in Lahore on Tuesday.
