The 17-member Parliamentary Committee on National Security, which is investigating the secret memo that said Zardari feared a coup after Osama bin Laden's death, will summon Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) director-general Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha and Husain Haqqani for their statements. 

Haqqani, former Pakistan Ambassador to Washington, had quit in November over the memo fiasco. Pakistani-American businessman Mansoor Ijaz, who has also been summoned, alleged that a "senior Pakistani diplomat" asked for help in getting a message from Zardari passed to then chairman of the US Joint Chief of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen.
