Islamabad, Nov. 30 (ANI): The Supreme Court of Pakistan has issued notices to former spymasters Masood Sharif Khattak and Tariq Lodhi to provide details of the alleged transfer of money from Intelligence Bureau's (IB) account for political purposes during their tenures.

Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, heading a three-judge bench, directed incumbent Director General of IB Akhtar Hussain Gorchani to submit his written reply in this regard and any other relevant document or receipt to back his case, according to The Express Tribune.
