Aziz said this did happen because the planners "miscalculated the Indian response and overall repercussions".
In retrospect, Aziz said he feels that "even if only Northern Light Infantry men were up there, it would be wrong to suggest that the operation was carried out by paramilitary forces because NLI falls under the military chain of command unlike the Rangers that are headed by a military officer but technically they fall under the control of the ministry of interior".
Aziz said after he was promoted as Chief of General Staff, he ordered a small study in 2004 to ascertain what miscalculations had led to such a huge loss of men and money in Kargil.
He also asked each battalion involved in the operation for details.
But an angry Musharraf called Aziz and asked what the objectives of the study were.
"I told him it would provide a professional understanding of our mistakes and losses but Gen Musharraf insisted that this was not the time for such a study and ordered that it be stopped," he said.
