The Pakistani government has decided not to extend the tenure of Inter
Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt. General Ahmed Shuja Pasha, a media
Pasha, who has been the director general of the ISI for the last
three-and-a-half years, will be transferred to the Strategic Plans
Division (SPD) as its head, the daily Dawn reported citing sources
on late Saturday.
He was handed a one-year extension as chief of the country's spy agency
last March. The government has not commented on the matter.
A source close to Pasha also said the ISI chief did not want an extension.
Sources claim that the government believes Pasha's appointment to PSD will
"help the future of Pakistan-US nuclear and strategic engagement".
